GigaTeam stopped by Cyworld’s launch fiesta at San Francisco’s Fluid Ultra Lounge last night and mingled with the Cyworld crew, relaxing after their debut.

A lot of high-level execs from Korea were wandering the floor, from both SK Telecom and Cyworld division, along with Cyworld U.S. consultants like Marc Canter. Since parent company SK Telecom has a lot of funds behind it, they can afford to throw a pretty decent party.
