About Real Escape Challenge
In 2016, Justin ventured his first business into South Korea by starting Real Escape Challenge (REC) - an “Offline Escape Room Business” that allows participants to engage in exciting and adventurous themed games with the intent to escape a locked/trapped scenario by working together to solve riddles and puzzles before time runs out.
REC was the first company to introduce escape room games into Korea, and at that time, the “Escape Room business” was something totally new to the country.
REC started an amazing trend for escape games and managed to achieve an extremely successful business launch even collaboraing with CJ group and CGV in the process.
Since then, many new competitors have entered the market, but REC is still going strong with their efforts to differentiate themselves via providing English games, engaging themes and great service.
Most recently, REC is receiving more investment enquires thus they are exploring further expansion and local franchising.
