Brief Summary:
This study will consist of 2 phases: Pretreatment Phase and Treatment Phase. The Pretreatment Phase will have 2 time points: Screening and Baseline. Subjects will be admitted to the clinical study ward the day before starting the study drug administration (Day -1) for PK and safety assessments during Treatment Phase, and discharged at Day 33 (group A) and Day 47 (group B). Post-test will be done at Day 37 (+/-1), Day 42 (+3) (group A) and Day 51 (+/-1), Day 56 (+3) (group B). Study medication will be administered with 240 mL of room temperature water

Drug Information available for: Perampanel

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Group A
Drug: Perampanel
2 mg up to 4 mg

Experimental: Group B
Days 1-14: Multiple oral dose of 2 mg perampanel (one 2 mg tablet) Days 15-28: Multiple oral dose of 4 mg perampanel (two 2 mg tablets) Days 29-42: Multiple oral dose of 6 mg perampanel (three 2 mg tablets)
Drug: Perampanel
2 mg up to 6 mg

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics (PK) of perampanel in Korean healthy male subjects [ Time Frame: Approximately 56 days ]
    PK analysis will be performed on PK Analysis Set using plasma concentrations of perampanel. Plasma concentrations will be tabulated by nominal sampling time and summarized using summary statistics.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of perampanel [ Time Frame: Approximately 56 days ]
    Safety will be assessed by monitoring and recording all adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs), regular monitoring of hematology, blood chemistry and urine values, regular measurement of vital signs, weight, physical examinations and electrocardiograms (ECGs).
