Court Approves Gravity Class Action Settlement

Seoul, Korea, January 7, 2008 – Gravity Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRVY, the “Company”), an online game developer and publisher, announced today that the federal judge presiding over the consolidated class action entitled Blackmoss Investments Inc. vs. Gravity Co., Ltd., No. 1:05-CV-04804-LAP, which was pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, approved the previously-disclosed settlement of the class action on November 21, 2007. In addition, no plaintiff has filed an appeal during the 30-day time appeal period which expired on December 21, 2007.

Under the terms of the settlement, a fund of US $10 million will be created to settle the claims of a class consisting of persons who purchased American Depository Shares of the Company during the period from February 7, 2005 through November 10, 2005, inclusive. The Company’s share of the settlement fund will be US $5 million. Costs of administering the settlement, as well as Plaintiffs’ attorneys’ fees of 20.56% of the settlement amount and related expenses will be paid out of the settlement fund before distributions are made to class members. In exchange, the Company, its current and former directors and officers as well as other third parties will be released from liability for the claims asserted by the class.

The Company has denied and continues to deny any and all allegations of wrongdoing in connection with this matter, but believes that given the uncertainties and costs associated with the litigation, the settlement was in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.
