Regarding the new imprint, Kurt Hassler, Publisher & Managing Director of Yen Press, noted that there has been an outsized rapacity for Korean content in recent years. There seems to be no end to the effect Korean innovators will exert on foreign audiences, from K-pop to film and television to current webcomics and books.

Yen has always believed in the power of Korean content, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to get the chance to really open up the doors to put these lovely books in the hands of English-language readers, said JuYoun Lee, the Deputy Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Yen Press, who is leading the initiative. With the opening of Ize Press, we hope to do our small bit in bridging the gap between these incredibly gifted musicians and their followers.
