Kim In-joo of LG Display won the King of Inventions award in the 55th Invention Day event that took place at Yeouido.

Kim was instrumental in the design of the rollable OLED panel from the start, the company said. He joined LG Display in 1999. He developed the slim and narrow module technology to make TVs thinner back in 2008. Kim also developed the side sealing technology that finishes the sides of panels back in 2013.
