Following launches in markets like China and Japan, the Vice Media Group-owned publication is further expanding its reach in Asia with the launch of a Seoul-based digital edition, it announced July 7.
The launch includes a website and Instagram channel; existing i-D video series, like “1616” and “i-D Meets” will also be localised.
The publication has appointed as its editor Han Song-in, previously the creative editor at Hypebeast Korea and fashion director at local title Eyesmag. Han will report to Elektra Kotsoni, the company’s global content editor. Lee Ji-sun, also joining from Hypebeast Korea, will take on the role of social editor.
