PANGYO, KOREA (September 15, 2020) - Jinsoo Jung, Chief Operating Officer at NCSOFT, explained the future value of games as cultural content, predicting 'no world without games in the next 10 to 20 years.' Jung’s thought parallels with the prediction that games will become a universal culture just as the Internet has become an important part of our lives and culture. During the interview to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Korea Internet Corporations Association, Jung explained, "Some agonize over the reason to play games. However, it is hard to foresee the next 10 to 20 years without games." Jung also said, "It is difficult to foresee the next 10 to 20 years of internet industry because what takes a couple of decades in other industries can happen only within six months to a year." He also added, "The Internet will become a mechanism that connects us, playing a vital role which will bring a new paradigm." He cited the Constitutional Court's ruling in 2012 as the most memorable moment during the past two decades. Jung said, "I believe this contributed to the growth of the nation's Internet industry as the ruling emphasized the importance of the freedom of expression." Jung also stressed the importance of necessary policy and legal systems while looking for laws and institutions to head for better times, with a ‘long-term view’ to develop into an ICT powerhouse. Jinsoo Jung, a former legal profession, joined NCSOFT in 2011 as Chief Legal Officer. He developed and established laws and procedures for NCSOFT's legal department, R&D, and technology. Jung has been leading the overall management as Chief Operating Office since 2015. He was promoted to Senior Vice President in February 2020.
