In his current role as Space Director at the Brand Experience Division at SK Planet, Ray manages the design development project for Kia Motors’ Motor Show Common Booth, and is also an Art Director for the Space vitalization project of Asia’s biggest shopping mall – New Coex.

Ray has a BA in Political Science and International Relations from Korea University, and he also studied as an exchange student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Following his Art and Business semester course at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London, he completed an MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy at the Goldsmiths College at the University of London.

Ray worked as an Art Director for Cheil Worldwide in Seoul, and later as a Curator for the Artsonje Center before joining SK Planet in November 2011.

Ray believes the EMBA at the Berlin School would adjust and enrich his understanding of creative leadership, and equip him with the necessary tools to achieve his goals. “After a successful journey at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, I will be more confident in the creative scene. This confidence will play a significant role in my industry. I also have the aspiration of creating something “new”, something that never existed in Korea. Through connecting global and local, merging arts and businesses, I wish to build “the creative hub” of the Korean creative scene. I am sure that the Berlin School will be my final puzzle piece in this big picture.”
