Kim Young-man, the Former Hanbitsoft Chairman, has returned to the industry.
He came back as CEO of B&M Holdings that has 100% shares of in-game item trading companies, IMI and Itembay. The reason he chose the in-game Item trading market is to improve its negative image and expand the business as he did for e-sports when he was the 1st chairman of KeSPA & KAOGI.
B&M Holdings said “in-game item trading business has been suffered because of restrict regulations. So we have game channeling and publishing business for diversifying our income sources. We are preparing for the band new business to grow. We think Mr.Kim is the right person for it.”
Kim Young-man worked for LGsoft Game Business division first. He established Hanbitsoft in 1999 and published Starcraft and Diablo 2 in Korea.
