During those years, it lent money from the Japanese banks at double interest rates to the Korean market and thus managed to consolidate more as an institution. It merged with Chohung Bank in 2005 and subsequently, along with Jeju Bank, began to be part of the Shinhan Financial Group. In 2013, its online banking services were temporarily blocked.
