"Through the internet, video games have evolved into a social and community-based experience," said Stanley Yu, President and CEO of Wicked Interactive. "With our strategic partnership with leading partner like Yedang Online, we are poised to take a pioneering role in capitalizing on this new phenomenon."
"Our strategic partnership with Wicked Interactive will enable us to further build upon our current successes in the North American market," said Jay Park, Overseas Marketing Director of Yedang Online.
