"It's a very exciting time for pool in Asia. We continue to do what we can in the West, but the progress and growth in Korea is amazing. We started from scratch and put enormous efforts and sweat equity into this market, but now we are really seeing the fruits of our labor. We are really grateful to all those who have been a part of this from day one and kept their faith. " commented Cindy Lee, President of DP.

In 2004 when DP ventured into Korea, pool was not televised and tournaments were very scarce. DP started producing events in Korea without television and little sponsor support. Brunswick Billiards came on board and in less than 3 years time Dragon Promotions has made pool a top ratings sport, attracting the interest of serious sponsors and many networks. DP billiard events also air on a weekly time slot with many spin off programs and specials. Today pool industry sponsors such as Brunswick Billiards and Predator Cues continues its support of DP Korea.
