NHN Hangame’s deputy CEO Wook Jung resigned.
NHN is to reshuffle the organization structure in line with his resignation. The position of Hangame CEO and game director will remain empty for a while as he leaves the company on December 30.
Hangame seems to be reformed into such areas as smartphone, RPG, non-RPG, and others and each director would have working level authority while final decision would be made by SangHun Kim the CEO of NHN.
Jung’s resignation is purportedly due to his personal excuse. An official from NHN said “He made the hard decision for his passion for a new business and to take a break.”
Wook Jung has worked for NHN since 2005 and has been appointed as the deputy CEO of Hangame for last 2 years. He has published big online games including <TERA>, <Metro Conflict>, <Kingdom Under Fire 2>, <Project R1>, and <Winning Eleven Online> and has expanded game business through founding Orange Crew, a smartphone game developer of NHN Hangame.
