Han Sung Ho has been pretty busy these last few years. The once songwriter/performer gone producer has built the FNC Music Company from the ground up and now they're getting even further from the ground.
Founded in 2006, FNC is now home to bands such as FT Island, CN Blue, and Jung Yonghwa. Through the popularity of these bands and Han Sung Ho's own innovation, FNC has begun construction on a new office building in the Chungdam-dong region in Seoul that is expected to be valued at 9 million USD after completion.

The construction began not too long ago, and when completed, building will boast around 6,421 square feet, stand three stories tall, and include a basement level.
The new building will be only 5-10 minutes away from the SM Entertainment building as well as the JYP Entertainment and Cube Entertainment buildings turning this area into a practical headquarters for the Korean music industry.
Although FNC Music does not have the longest history amongst entertainment labels, they are being praised as a strong and stable label in the industry. They also established their very own private music education institute, FNC Academy. They do not focus on just producing albums and managing artists; they are going against the grain and pursuing new and different models of business.
FNC Academy is located in Hongdae and Kangnam, and the Hongdae location especially boasts large-scale facilities. They recruit the best professional coaches and continue to train their artists as well as discover and develop new rookies.
