2nd Logo (2000s)

Visuals: A yellow light shines in over a black background, while the transparent letters "KY" shoot and spin out into the center as the light spreads out. The "KY" shines and darkens as the light also dims, leaving the border, while the inside turns red and the text "Kumyoung" in gray 3D letters spreads out and spins into view. The background turns white, before the logo fades out completely.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Three synthesized brass notes with whooshing sounds when the letters appear. A keyboard glissando when the text settles in, with the male announcer saying "The sound of innovation, Kumyoung" with the synth note being held. Other sounds according to the actions are heard. At the end, a crescending note with two drum hits.
