Founded in 2009, Nature Republic is one of the largest Korean Cosmetic companies with a wide-reaching presence in a multitude of categories including skincare, makeup, as well as body and hair care. Hanryu aims to enhance the already coveted Nature Republic brand with entrance into PAPAYA stores and the creation of co-branded merchandise. Nature Republic's revenue in 2022 was $106 million, and the brand currently has over 500 stores in South Korea, as well as stores in 19 countries, including the United States.
"Hanryu and Nature Republic have committed to establishing plans to magnify the global presence of Nature Republic and garner widespread attention for both companies," said Kang Chang Hyuk, the CEO of Hanryu Holdings. "Nature Republic strongly believes in FANTOO's level of quality and innovative potential as a media platform based on our geographically diversified 26.6 million users, so they have chosen us for their promotional needs over other competing platforms. Promotion of the leading brand has already started in all over the world, and they have already made an initial payment to the Company. This service agreement is a real milestone for FANTOO, and this will be just the starting point for the relationship between our two companies that shows how Hanryu offers a point of difference from other media platforms. We will persistently seek out profitable ventures that utilize not only the revenue from multi-media promotions and merchandise sales generated by the existing FANTOO platform, but also our intellectual property, such as company-owned characters. Additionally, we plan to continue collaborating with companies that possess expertise in various fields to complement our own strategic advantages."
