KT&G was founded in 1899 by the royal family as a Monopoly Bureau given the task of managing tax income documents. In 1948, the government created a department to monopolize cigarette and ginseng products. In 1989, KT&G was reformed as a government-affiliated organization. In 2002, following the abolishment of the tobacco monopoly law, KT&G became independent of the government and took the lead in the competing with domestic and foreign cigarette manufacturers.
Currently, by leveraging its more than 60% domestic market share, KT&G is actively entering overseas markets.
