DramaFever Execs Land Expanded Warner Bros. Roles


Suk Park and Hyun Park have been tapped as co-heads of production and acquisitions for Korean drama TV series at Warner Bros. Entertainment.

The pair joined the studio when it acquired the streaming platform DramaFever in 2016. In their expanded role, they will oversee the acquisition and production of content for the Korean market. They will also manage the licensing of Korean formats for the U.S. and are tasked with bringing select Warner Bros. TV formats into Korea, such as The Mentalist.

Seoul-based Suk and New York-based Hyun report to Craig Hunegs, the president of Warner Bros. Digital Networks and of business and strategy at Warner Bros. Television Group, for DramaFever-related projects. On international production matters, they report to Marc Gareton, executive VP for the Asia Pacific at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment & International Production.

“Suk’s great creative taste and relationships with the top Korean production companies and talent have made DramaFever the number one destination for Korean programming in America,” Hunegs said. “With Suk’s new role further enhancing our presence in Korea and Asia, DramaFever is poised for continuing rapid growth.”

“Hyun has great strategic insight and experience, and we are thrilled that he will continue to leverage both in this expanded role,” added Gareton. “His incredible knowledge will be invaluable as we underline our commitment to local talent and local content in Korea, which now includes TV drama as well as our established film production.”
