GameStop

Everybody is talking about this stock or company – feels like recent frenzies in Korean Stock Exchange got amplified at US with hedge funds vs community with this stock.

Watching this as a person who majored business twice, regularly watching what is happening in KSE, and working in game industry, makes me have multiple thoughts and personal memories/histories crossed over.

I think the true winners of this run is any GameStop employee who holds lots of shares, and stock brokerage who gets any fees if any… as old Korean saying the billiard shop owner wins the billiard game. ๐Ÿ™‚
