After completing his stint as a host of Pinoy Big Brother: Connect, Richard Juan marked a new milestone in his life, this time as an entrepreneur. Richard recently announced that his entertainment production company 28 Squared Studios has partnered with South Korean agency Wild Entertainment Group.
“Being in the entertainment industry for quite some time now, I was very fortunate to be able to travel and work around the world for different projects. Through that, I was able to build a network of friends and partners and very fortunately, I was able to meet Leonard Lim, the CEO of Wild Entertainment, through a common friend who’s based in Canada,” Richard said on how his partnership with the South Korean agency started.
Richard serves as the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of 28 Squared Studios which produces content for different platforms in the region and beyond. Through his partnership with Wild Entertainment Group, the actor-host and entrepreneur aims to bridge Philippine content and talents to the global audience.
“With Wild’s vast network of not only in South Korea but also in the US, we want to collaborate and make things that will reach and attract the international audience. Here in the Philippines, we have a lot of talented people. One of our immediate goals is to create Filipino content or bring a Filipino artist out there. Kaya natin eh. We can produce really good content and we have very talented performers in the country. And with this partnership with Wild, I believe we will be able to achieve something special,” he shared.
Wild Entertainment is a hybrid management company, media production, and network source that represents top artists, producers, creators, and celebrities across the globe. The agency recently collaborated with Cube Entertainment to produce the solo single of Sorn (from K-Pop group CLC) titled “Run,” which reached the second spot on the US iTunes Chart for the K-Pop category.
Richard remarked that he sees a lot of potential in his company's partnership with Wild.
“I see it as a mutual growth type of partnership especially with the projects we are planning. If 28 Squared Studios grows bigger, Wild grows bigger too and vice versa. But I don't want to get ahead of myself and share too much away but this partnership has a lot of potential to take both parties to new heights,” he said.
