JYP Entertainment to purchase and remodel a large building for its new company headquarters

It has been reported that JYP Entertainment will be purchasing and remodeling a large building in Seoul's Olympic Park to be used as their new company headquarters. This has gained attention as to whether they will be using their treasury stock worth 20 Billion KRW $17.8 million (approx.) into this building.

They have decided to leave their current building that has been used since 2002. Currently, they are using five different buildings for its operations with the main building in Cheongdam-dong but have now decided to move to one large building that can house everything and everyone within the company under one roof. With the location close to the Lotte Tower, Han River, and many other attractions, it seems to be a smart and calculated move in order to expand to a wider audience across the world.
