Studio Dragon Corporation (Korean스튜디오드래곤 주식회사; RRSeutyudiodeuraegon Jusikhoesa) is a South Korean drama production company under CJ ENM's E&M division. It was established on May 3, 2016 as a spin-off from E&M Media Content.[7]

The company joined the KOSDAQ index of Korea Exchange, the same index where its parent company is included, through an initial public offering on November 24, 2017.[8][9][10]


Studio Dragon's logo, which it calls the "Drama Paragon", was inspired by Cintamani, a wish-fulfilling jewel within both Hindu and Buddhist traditions. It represents Asian culture, which the company wants to glorify through every production it makes. The logo, made by Korean brand design company BRANDMAJOR,[11] was first introduced in the 2016 drama Squad 38.
