disguise opens office in South Korea to better serve one of its fastest growing markets

As the global team at disguise continues to grow, we’re thrilled to announce we’re expanding our presence in the APAC region with the opening of a brand new location in Songpa-gu, Seoul to serve Korea’s increasing demand for extended reality (xR) production.

Since September 2019, disguise’s Head of Korea, Jinny Kim, has created a strong foundation for the market by building and nurturing meaningful relationships in the industry that are based on careful listening and collaboration, and clear communication of disguise's culture and values.

Ranked as the most innovative country in the world for six consecutive years by Bloomberg’s 2019 Innovation Index, it is no surprise that, since 2019, Korea has quickly become one of disguise’s most burgeoning markets across the globe, trusted by industry leaders such as XON Studios, Amberin, BasicTech, MOFAC, NP Studios, Dexter Studios, Ark Ventures Korea, JINWOO M&C, Live Lab and GEM Media, as well as notable local media and broadcast organisations, including CJENM and KBS, and government agencies such as CTIA and NIPA.

The demand for disguise in Korea is skyrocketing so, as a result, earlier this year we have started growing our team to support Jinny in meeting the requirements of these high-profile customers on the ground. Today, Jinny Kim is joined by Project Manager SungHo Jeong and our two Junior Support Specialists SungWoo Park and Sang Bae who bring a wealth of experience across live production and broadcast to enable our partners to create their best story with disguise.

disguise Korea is a powerful team with extensive experience in creative communications. We are striving to create a good workplace culture and operating philosophy that is directly connected to disguise’s overall reputation. I am incredibly proud to see how our mark on the Korean media and entertainment industry keeps growing as some of the country’s leading organisations are now entrusting disguise with their groundbreaking projects.
