BIOGRAPHY

Bang Jun-Hyuk was born in Seoul, South Korea, South Korea. Bang Jun-Hyuk is #853 in List Billionaires People In The World. Bang Jun-Hyuk is the chairman of South Korea's largest mobile-gaming company, Netmarble, which he founded in 2000. Starting with $88,000 pooled from early investors, Bang has built Netmarble into a $1.3 billion (2016 sales) gaming empire, primarily known for its action-packed role-playing games that have become hits across Asia, the U. K and the U.S. In May 2017, he took the company public, raising $2.4 billion in what became South Korea's largest listing in seven years. He says he plans to use the funds toward new M&A opportunities, particularly in the U.S. Bang retains about a quarter of the company. A high school dropout, he is an outlier among the country's richest tech entrepreneurs who typically boast pedigrees from elite universities.
