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 VA Corporation, XON Studios, NP Studios, SK Telecom, Dexter Studios, WestWorld, Tree Top Party, Real Peach, Amberin, Ark Ventures Korea, JINWOO M&C, BESCO, and as well as notable local media and broadcast organisations, including CJENM and KBS, and government agencies such as GCC, BFC, CTIA, SBA and NIPA.
The demand for disguise in Korea is skyrocketing so, as a result, we have grown 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 three Support Specialists SungWoo Park, Sang Bae and Eunji Choi who bring a wealth of experience across live production and broadcast. Additionally, Hardware Technician Tanner Im and Finance Assistant Manager Olivia Choi 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.
Jinny Kim, disguise Head of Korea
Our growing Korea team is dedicated to building on these foundations and pushing boundaries further so that disguise becomes the industry standard for live and virtual production in the region.
disguise’s team in South Korea is made up of the following key people:
Jinny Kim - Head of Korea

He was impressed by not only the technology behind it but also the customer support that disguise provided. Since then, disguise became his go-to solution for any complex live event video system need.
