ABOUTWe are making the history
of the global pharmaceutical industry.


    Better Life through Better Medicine
    Contributing to improved quality of life and
    public welfare by developing quality medicines

    A company that has achieved numerous
    ‘firsts,’ ‘bests’ and ‘very bests’

    Dedicated to pharmaceuticals since its foundation,
    Chong Kun Dang has overcome many challenges,
    while continuing to grow and contribute to the
    advancement of Korea’s pharmaceutical industry.

    In the days when Korea imported 100% of the raw
    materials required for medicines from abroad,
    we built Korea’s largest plants for chemical
    synthesis and fermentation, making it possible to
    produce pharmaceutical ingredients locally using
    our own technology. From there, we had driven
    Korean Pharmaceutical Industry with this
    breakthrough on the path toward modernization.

    Furthermore, we became the first Korean pharmaceutical company to export products to the US
    market through the obtainment of the U.S. FDA approval.
    Now, on its 77th anniversary, we promise to put all efforts to lead continuous change and innovation,
    positioning Chong Kun Dang as a global pharmaceutical company with a competitive edge in the
    international market.
