the founding of 'Lucky Chemical Co., Ltd.'
Korea Chemical Industry's new horizon opens
In 1945, Korea gained independence from Imperial Japan’s colonial rule.
Yonam, who had been running a business in Jinju, renewed his mind for a new departure
toward the new era and relocated his business to Busan, South Korea.
In Busan, Yonam founded Chosun Heungup Company, which was the first trading company
licensed by the US military government, and expanded his business.
It was the beginning of a new horizon in Korea’s petrochemical history.
