SK Planet

SK planet, a wholly owned subsidiary of SK telecom, was established in October 1, 2011 with an aspiration to become a global platform innovator.

As the lynchpin of SK telecom’s future growth, the company was spun off with the industry-leading platform businesses including T-Store, T-map, MelOn, and Cyworld, Korea’s biggest mobile app store, mobile navigation, online music service and SNS respectively. The company also pioneers in new media with hoppin, Korea’s first multi-screen premium video service, and continues to build momentum in its online commerce leadership with 11th Street.

SK planet aspires to develop a wide scope of global partnerships such as TMK, a media joint venture with Disney. Through collaborations with partners, SK planet is committed to building global platform business in Asia and other strategic markets.
