The company runs a 2,314 square meter big factory alongside a 661 square meter PR office. CEO Jeon Sung-su took over the near bankrupt Korean rice wine Chundoongsori Makgeolli (Thunderstorm Rice Wine) in 2016 and succeeded brining back its former glory through professional management and marketing system.
