Fung Retailing Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the privately held Fung Group, announced that its joint venture with funds managed by private equity firm AEA Investors LP has acquired a 70% stake in the Suhyang Group, Korea's pre-eminent retailer of baby’s and children's apparel.

Suhyang operates over 210 shop-in-shop stores in department stores in Korea for its popular baby and children’s brands namely Minkmui, Bluedog, Bluedog Baby, R.Robot, Denim In the Box and Lulabee. The company also manages nine outlet stores and three multi-brand shops in Korea.
