 DSP Media's History

DSP Media was originally named DaeSung Enterprise when it first went into business in 1991. In fact, the company went through four name changes. In 1999, the company was renamed DSP Entertainment. In 2008, with the successful expansion in the entertainment industry, DSP Entertainment was rebranded as DSP Media.

DaeSung Enterprise was founded in September 1991 by Lee HoYeon to provide entertainers to the public. One of their first Korean music groups was Firetruck (소방차). The group was a hit and is still loved by the older Koreans.

In February 1999, with the success of star groups like Sechs Kies and FIN.K.L., the company went through legal actions to rename itself to DSP Entertainment.

After merging with Hoshin Textile Company (호신섬유) in March 2006, DSP Entertainment was renamed to DSP Enti.

In September 2008, DSP Enti was renamed as DSP Media. By this time, the company became renowned for its success in the kpop music, Korean drama and TV show production industries.
