I am not into those messenger app but I can appreciate the irony to see that the most popular messenger app in Japan is coming from SK, this is good. That being said, I feel courageous to any foreign investors to invest their money into a company which is operated in Japan, there is not enough transparency in my opinion here and accounting books...oh my well.....anyway, good luck in that venture.

Line is more Japan-centered (it's all about the cutesy stickers), but we use WeChat at work.

Hopefully they can fix their PC app. It's been freezing up when I type and never syncs the messages correctly.

I still don't understand using an app to perform a function built into every smartphone on the planet. This IPO can only go one direction, down. It's not Facebook and it's pretty much only popular in Japan.
