SK, which raised its assets with semiconductors, batteries, and biotechnology, ranked second in the business world rankings.

With a total asset of 291.9 trillion won, SK Group ranked second after Samsung.

After climbing to the third place in the asset rankings of large corporations in 2006, it pushed Hyundai Motor to third place for the first time in 16 years.

The increase in Hynix’s assets and the increase in the assets of its innovation subsidiaries were largely due to the increase in semiconductor sales.

Dunamu, which operates Upbit, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in Korea, has been designated as a corporate group restricted from mutual investment with assets of 10.8 trillion won.

Assets increased 8 times from a year ago, and customer deposits amounting to 5.8 trillion won were included in the assets.

Jungheung Construction, HMM, and Taeyoung have also been newly designated as corporate groups with limited mutual investment, with total assets exceeding 10 trillion won.

Conglomerates with assets exceeding KRW 10 trillion are subject to regulations such as prohibition of mutual investment and debt guarantee along with disclosure obligations.

Among the large conglomerates, the growth of shipping, construction, and IT major conglomerates was remarkable.

HMM, the former Hyundai Merchant Marine, jumped to 25th, Jungheung Construction, which acquired Daewoo E&C, ranked 20th, and Kakao and Naver ranked 15th and 22nd, respectively.

Game company Krafton, which developed the world-famous shooting game Battleground, has assets exceeding 6 trillion won.

Coupang was again designated as a ‘corporate group without a head’ as Chairman Beom-seok Kim, who is a national of the United States, avoided designating a head.
