The time has finally come for the grand unveiling of Forbes’ esteemed 30 Under 30 Asia 2019 list. Editors, journalists and judges have worked for over six months to discover the best and brightest leaders, pioneers and entrepreneurs under age 30 across the continent to define 300 finalists across 10 categories. For the third year, I had the grand opportunity to discover South Korea’s emerging generation of leaders.
In South Korea, the competition was fierce but over 30 finalists made the cut, from emerging Kpop idol group BLACKPINK and biracial model Hyunmin Han to gaming legend Faker and Dohee Keum, Gwanho Yoon & Dasol Lee, researchers at POSTECH. The list also includes expats in South Korea and South Koreans working overseas.
Here are the finalists from South Korea:
Food & Arts
Healthcare & Science
Finance & VC
Retail & Ecommerce
Entertainment & Sports
Congratulations to the finalists!
