About us

Building a world where everyone does what they truly love

"Why is it so hard to pursue what we love?" It shouldn't have to be

People in the creative industry often find it difficult to align their passion with their work. They are frequently asked if they can really make a living by following their heart.

Here at CLASS101, we don’t think it should be so out of the ordinary to ‘live what you love by pursuing a creative career. We don't want doubt to ever stop someone from chasing life and career that they love. We want our creators to have the freedom to travel the world without worrying about where their next paycheck is coming from.

Then what about when it comes to learning something new? Do you want to find a new hobby or skill, but don’t know where to start? We know the feeling! Our professional production team works with industry-leading creators to deliver the tools our students need to master their craft of choice.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, in the case of CLASS101, it really isn't! We are the biggest online hobby platform in South Korea and the only platform that delivers class kits worldwide. Our Korean site has over 1.8M active users (as of Nov, 2020), and more joining the movement to live what they love every day. To this day, we've opened over 1000 classes with many creators making an average of $5000USD in the first month alone and top creators making up to $100,000 USD or more! As a result of our success, we’ve received $10.5 million USD in funding.

Our platform is rapidly gaining worldwide attention. So we are now replicating our model to serve our global audience. Within just a few months, our English site reached 3.7M visits and a 98.5% satisfaction rate! (as of April, 2020) We are ready to help you ‘live what you love!'
