Sam Corporation

Sam Corporation is currently providing a beta service for Story Creator and Media Creator education toy and We Creator, the online integrated platform service. Among them, Story Creator is a story creation board game that helps learners to think in context by combining and integrating individual information such as characters, backgrounds, and events. It was developed in the form of a transparent card to help learners’ imagination, and in November last year, the service was released at Burnett Creek Elementary School’s Gifted and Talented Class in Indiana, US and received great response from students.

Park Jae-beom” CEO of Sam Corporation, said, “As I taught children, I wondered whether it would be possible to increase the creativity of children by integrating the pure areas of art and the advanced areas of media. I have developed products and solutions that increase creativity and desire to achieve by making the paintings they drew and infusing the stories to them.”


THE PLAN G is an edutech company that launched Odinga English, a learning app for elementary school students’ English speaking skills in December last year’ and it recently launched the first multilingual version of the Odinga English Hindi version on the Google Store and is attracting attention.

The main service Odinga English is an AI-powered English conversation app for young children and elementary school children. Odinga English is designed so that users can develop their English speaking skills with Odinga by teaching English to Odinga, a character who does not know English from space, with the help of an English professor while playing the game by voice recognition. Especially with the Spiral model curriculum, natural repetitive learning and role-play gamification builds confidence in English speaking skills so that elementary school children can learn English naturally without stress and develop language skills through role-play.

Buzz & B

Buzz & B develops and operates a platform service that searches influencers by using deep learning technology and analyzes their activities, allowing advertisers to get YouTubers that match their brand identities. “While conducting game influencer marketing too much time, effort, and cost were invested in searching for influencers and checking whether they are suitable for the brand to be marketed,” said Shim Chung-bo. The company developed the search engine because there are many companies that did not get the marketing effect they expected.

With this search engine, Buzz & B was recognized for its technology as it was selected for the TIPS R&D project, a technology startup program by the MSS in the beginning of its business. In March this year, it has been selected as a supplier of NIPA’s AI Voucher Support Project. Afterwards, Buzz & B launched vling, an AI-based influencer search engine for full-scale commercialization.

Shim said, “Prior to searching for influencers, the criteria for evaluating influencers are ambiguous. vling can be considered as the integrated influencer solution to solve such problem.”


There is a company that creates new types of video content that will entertain the world by combining culture and technology. Ideaconcert is the company that opens the world of new artworks based on the picture contents. Toonivie, the webtoon video production tool developed by Ideaconcert, produces all contents made up of pictures from comic books to educational illustrations and corporate catalogs with just one click.

Jeon Dal-yong, the CEO of Ideaconcert, introduced the company as the company that makes, promotes, and utilizes contents. It supplies VOD and OTT service providers by making webtoons into video by using Toonivie. Toonivie is the best tool to supply webtoon movies to the video platform more easily, and it converts picture contents into video contents through image separation, screen production, sound, dubbing, and translation features.
