BIGBANG’s Seungri is branching out into a new industry!
On November 3, the AR/VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality) company Social Network announced that Seungri would be joining the company as the head of its VR department. The BIGBANG member will be launching a new VR franchise brand called “Head Rock VR,” for which he will also serve as the spokesmodel.
Although Seungri has already made a name for himself as a successful entrepreneur, the new franchise marks his first foray into the technology sector.
Seungri remarked, “It’s an honor to be able to pursue my dreams together with the nation’s top AR/VR company. Moving beyond the F&B [Food & Beverage] industry, in which I am already active, I will become a pioneer who stands at the forefront of a new entertainment culture that will bring people joy.”
Park Soo Wang, the CEO of Social Network, commented, “Meeting Seungri, who has already overseen multiple franchise companies, has given us new wings, and we feel that we are in good hands. Together with Seungri, we will do our utmost as a VR franchise industry pioneer.”
Seungri will officially be appointed the head of Social Network’s VR department in a special ceremony held on November 7, during which he will also give a presentation on the new VR franchise brand.
