Byung-Chol (B.C.) Yoon, Chair of the Seoul IDRC Steering Committee said, “In the midst of COVID-19 from last year, virtual hearings have emerged as an alternative. Seoul IDRC has adopted the changes very quickly. Particularly, in conjunction with Korea's outstanding IT infrastructure, Seoul IDRC's virtual hearing services are drawing attention from international arbitration practitioners around the world.”


Heehwan Kwon, Director of KCAB INTERNATIONAL added, “Compared with 2019, the number of virtual hearing cases in 2020 rose more than five times and the days of virtual hearings rose more than fifteen times. Even in the post-COVID-19 era, we are certain that Seoul IDRC’s excellent virtual hearing technology and comfortable and supportive services will be the "new-standard of hearings" in the arbitration community and the Seoul IDRC Steering Committee will try to widely spread the value of the Seoul IDRC’s world-class virtual hearing services.”


Seoul IDRC will not only attract KCAB’s international arbitration cases, but also those of other arbitral institutions as well. This highlights Seoul’s attractiveness as a location for hearings and use as an arbitration seat.
