Operating profit rose 188.5 per cent quarter-to-quarter to KRW5.4bn (US$4.1m), and net profit grew to KRW3.7bn (US$2.8m). Paradise Co’s sales rose 85 per cent quarter-to-quarter to KRW13.7bn (US$10.4m) thanks to growth in Japan and mass markets, which helped offset a slower-than-expected recovery in the Chinese market. Visa-free entry fully resumed for Japan from October 2022.
