Along with Brendan Greene, Kim took on the development of PUBG with a small team of 30 in the early stages of 2016. They wanted to make a game in the battle royale genre, which wasn’t as famous as it is now back then.

In September 2017, Bluehole Ginno Games was renamed as the PUBG Corporation, with Kim as its Chief Executive Officer. Their hard work led to the release of the game in December 2017. The game was an instant hit and attracted a lot of popularity to the battle royale genre. 

Later, the game was released for the other gaming platforms like Xbox One, PS4, Google Stadia and mobile. 

Kim is largely responsible for the massive success of the battle royale game. PUBG was awarded The Game Award for Best Multiplayer Game in the year 2017.
