The Lost Ark KR was a highly anticipated mobile game that is said to be the next big thing in blockchain. Its director, Ji-hoon Kim, has reportedly stepped down for health concerns and all future updates of the title will cease until further notice. What does this mean for players?

Kwon “keum kang sun” is reportedly stepping down as the director of Lost Ark KR. He has been suffering from health concerns and it seems that he wants to focus on his health.

Lost Ark KR’s director is reportedly stepping down because of health concerns


According to several unverified reports on the official Lost Ark forums and subreddit, Keum Kang Seong Hyung or Gold River, the director for the Korean version of the game, has declared that he would be stepping down due to chronic health difficulties.

According to one fan translation, Gold River revealed the news on a Korean developer breadcast earlier today, when he acknowledged that his health has been declining for the previous year, to the point where an ambulance was on standby during a live event he was attending. His last appearance for the game will be at the forthcoming LOA-ON event in December 2022, according to another fan’s post.

Western fans of the MMOARPG have expressed their gratitude for his efforts on the game, while some have just exploited it to criticize the game’s commercialization.

We hasten to point out that none of this has been officially mentioned or acknowledged by Amazon Games at the time of this writing, as its social media presence on Twitter is mostly focused on the May update arriving to the west. Regardless, we do wish Gold River all the best and hope his health recovers.
