In addition, On The River, a corporation that started as a clothing shopping mall, stood out in the online commerce sector by entering as a large department store and being selected as an excellent company in the social commerce sector. It formally established a corporation in 2015 and has continued its big growth the following year by winning the premium brand grand prize chosen by female consumers and selling more than 10 billion won in sales.
