Popular Korean avatar mobile application Zepeto has just received another big investment from a K-Pop agency!


On November 9 KST, it was revealed that JYP Entertainment has invested 5 billion KRW (approximately $4.5 million USD) in Zepeto's parent company NAVER Z. The news comes less than a month since Korean press revealed both YG Entertainment and Big Hit Entertainment also invested in the application.
