Korea’s metaverse platform vies to help people
Mellonvus CEO Kim Han-sung strives to make the company a metaverse platform that gives hopes and opportunities to children across the globe.
As a part of such efforts, the Seoul-based company said that it had started a social contribution project of providing complementary surgery for wounded children with burns on their faces.
The Teddy Bear World Foundation has also joined the initiative, according to Mellonvus.
In addition, the outfit recently opened the XR Art Gallery to provide opportunities for unknown artists to debut. It hopes to become a gateway for talented new generations.
CEO Kim noted that Mellonvus has many other things to do in the virtual space of metaverse, which he says is a “world without prejudice.”
“Based on my long management experience and preparation, my personal life goal is to restore life hopes and opportunities to children around the world by providing qualified English and mathematics contents that can only be received in high-priced tutoring through metaverse,” he said in a recent interview.
“People will often hear the name Mellonvus in 2022. I want to meet many customers at offline places connected to the metaverse when the business is settled on the metaverse.”
Kim worked as a chief executive at such global companies or their branches, including Escada and Folli Follie through Samsung (Hotel Shilla), Coca-Cola, JWT, and Louis Vuitton.
Kim, who studied in the U.K, Switzerland, and the U.S., lived in South Korea’s scenic resort island Jeju for a while for children’s education.
He took charge of Mellonvus midway through last year. On taking office, he hosted the country’s first K-culture fashion show three times on the Microsoft metaverse channel to receive positive responses from the global audience, the firm said.
