Metaverse: A New Era

Who leads the mega trend, Metaverse? Here is how South Korea supports the industry.

What Is the Metaverse?

“Metaverse” refers to a digital world in which virtuality and reality are integrated. Naver’s Zepeto, one example of Korea's leading metaverse platforms, is popular with Generation Zers who make avatars and play games. Zepeto surpassed 130 million subscribers within a year of its launch. The world's largest metaverse service, Roblox, is said to have 42.1 million active users who spend more time in Roblox than with their friends or family.

With the development of virtual and AR technologies, the metaverse has emerged as a leading force in a new era as it influences the game, entertainment, music, and content industries. After the outbreak of COVID-19, in particular, everyday life and industries have been rapidly changing, especially in the field of education.
