You may be wondering who is Lost Ark Gold River? Keum Kang Sun, also known as Gold River to the community, is the game's director, though some of the community confusingly believe him to be the Lost Ark CEO. Gold River has recently announced that he will be shortly stepping down as the game's director after years in the role, so much of the playerbase is worried about the future of the game. If you need a full primer on who Lost Ark Gold River is, along with what the recent news is about. 

Who Is Lost Ark Gold River?

Who Is Lost Ark Gold River?

Gold River is the alias for the Lost Ark game director, Keum Kang Sun, who has served as the mastermind behind the Korean MMO for some time now. Under his stewardship, the game has gone on to be a big success, with the recent release into Western territories making the game even more popular.

Why Are People Googling Him?

Recently people have been searching Gold River due to the announcement that he's set to step down as the game director. He's reportedly been experiencing severe health issues that, paired with the heavy workload of a game director, has put him under a lot of stress. At a previous LOA-ON event, which is a convention for Lost Ark, they had to have an ambulance on standby due to his health problems.

 

His last LOA-ON event will be in December later this year, and sometime around then, the new leadership responsible for Lost Ark's direction will be announced. Some have been confusing Keum Kang Sun as the Lost Ark CEO after this recent news, but the current leader of Smilegate, Joon Ho Sung, is still set to continue in his role. 

That's our quick explainer on Lost Ark Gold River a.k.a. Keum Kang Sun, and now you know who he is, and why he is stepping down as the game director. 

We also have a breakdown of the Lost Ark Monte Island, if you need to get one of the collectible Island Tokens.
