Musai Studio received an unexpected meaningful trophy by Konsoler.
Last year, Musai Studio introduced an event called ‘2019 HOTY’ which is an award for the best Korean localized game of the year. (See the post http://bit.ly/36Wm6ul ) Konsoler, a Korean news site specialized in console games, had run the poll for both ‘2019 GOTY’ and ‘2019 HOTY’ on Korean gamers and finally announced the result.

Besides, Musai Studio was awarded a special trophy in honor of the passion and effort as a studio to localize various console games in Korean including ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’.
Since the winners are selected by users’ votes, it was such a huge pleasure for us to hear that ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’ won 2019 HOTY. Being a part of connecting between ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’ and the Korean fans was a meaningful and exciting experience and now, it became even more priceless for us with a trophy as a positive feedback from the players.

Award Acceptance Speech for Special Trophy: Inwook Lee, CEO at Musia Studio
The year of 2019 was very special. Many console games were released with Korean voice-over overall and as for Musai Studio, we have met a variety of great games during the year. The more titles we have worked on, the more deeply we considered the quality to provide the improved sound and dubbing for players.
In terms of that, 2019 HOTY award of ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’ was very pleasant news for us. Since the game itself was almost perfect to provide the best immersive play for the users, we have tried a new style of dubbing and directing to maximize the immersion the game had. The trophy from users means a lot for us and we are grateful the new attempts were successful.
We are thankful ‘Blizzard Korea’ for the continuous support to make it works and ‘Konsoler’ for the great event to give us a chance to communicate with users. For the most, we would like to thank the Korean fans for enjoying the gameplay with the new style of dubbing. We will see you through many upcoming masterpieces localized with Korean voice-over for this year.
