KBS Media was founded in 1991 and has been actively licensing international and domestic rights of contents, distributing VOD contents, importing and dubbing foreign programs and carrying on various other businesses related to contents.
KBS Media exported a drama series ‘Winter Sonata’ to Japan in 2003, first in Korean drama
history, contributing to the expansion of Korean Wave in Asia. Since then, through global contents markets, KBS media expanded its market to Europe, Middle East, Latin America and Africa, to become the leading central force of Korean Wave phenomenon.
KBS Media’s merger with KBS Internet in July, 2011 has enabled the company to expand its distribution network to new media platforms such as PC, IPTV, Smart TV, and mobile devices. Consolidation of online and offline distribution is creating synergy and increasing profit to the company and enables KBS Media to be unrivaled in contents distribution.
