120 years ago, Dong Wha Pharm. was created, South Korea’s first pharmaceutical company. Their signature product, Whal Myung Su, was the country’s first medicine. Dong Wha has created medicine with the mindset, “do not make just any medicine, but good medicine”, and it is still true today.
Hyun Kyung Yoon, the founder of Whal Myung was the 4th generation successor of Dong Wha. Hyun Kyung’s foundational experience would come from her time as a chef abroad in the United States. Her experiences fueled her interests and appreciation of good ingredients. She consistently tried finding ingredients that have positive effects on our body.
After coming back to Korea she launched Whal Myung skin care in 2017, the same year of Dong Wha’s 120th year anniversary.
