“I will do my best, thinking that it is the last project of my life. KWAVE GO, a comprehensive entertainment social media platform launched in LA in line with the global boom of Hallyu, can grow into a world-leading company.”

KWAVE GO’s new CEO, Young-Jun Kim, visited Korea Times on the 24th with Vice President Steven Choi and revealed his future business plan and vision. New CEO Kim said, “In order to further revitalize the globalization of the Hallyu boom, Korean companies must take the initiative and play a role in connecting the supply chain and demand through content development.”

He also said, “We will create a win-win growth structure by selling it all over the world.” New CEO Kim emphasized that KWAVE GO will incorporate advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, and block-chain with ‘human touch.’

KWAVE GO aims to be listed on the NASDAQ through the growth of its subsidiaries. In addition to the global Hallyu social platform function centered on news blogs, it provides a variety of services such as K-pop, K-movie, K-game, K-beauty, K-food, K-webtoon, K-fashion, K-character, and K-culture. Content services have been completed or are being prepared.

A system has also been established in which Hallyu fans can purchase their own cryptocurrency (KWG) with points accumulated on the platform and pay for necessary services with one touch. KWAVE GO is  looking for companies and partners to supply Hallyu contents and products to the company.

The new CEO Kim has over 30 years of rich experience in IT and business development. After graduating from Sungkyunkwan University in Korea, he was in charge of trade finance at Hyosung CT, one of the largest trading companies in Korea.

After that, he took on the role of global CEO of ‘KMW,’ a Korean wireless communication base station equipment and parts manufacturer. KMW has been listed on the KOSDAQ with annual sales of $200 million and corporate value of $2 billion. In addition, he has served CEO of the IT company such as Plasma Work, Inc. and Tekmar Inc.
