Gangnam Style Shatters Records for TVK-Pop On Demand

  (December 10, 2012)

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2012

TVK24, a leading Korean broadcaster in the U.S., announced today that TVK-Pop On Demand, a free video on demand service featuring top Korean music videos received an unprecedented number of views in October becoming one of the top performing VOD services available.

In one month, TVK-Pop On Demand received over 2.6 million views and Gangnam Style received over 1.78 million of those views, propelling the service to the top 10% of high performing VOD content providers in all categories.

KPop is a phenomenon that has captured audiences around the world and thanks to Psy and his mega-hit Gangnam Style, KPop is reaching an even bigger mainstream audience. We are pleased to be able to continue to expand this VOD offering to fans in the U.S. said Eric Yoon, Founder and CEO of tvK24.


TVK-Pop features the hottest Korean music videos in a variety of genres including electropop, hip hop, pop, rock and R&B. Each month, 30 new music videos are available from the most popular Korean idols and groups from South Korea, many of whom have also created a subculture of fashion and style amongst teenagers and young adults around the world. Most recently, Psys Gangnam Style created a massive mainstream following after its infectious song and video became a U.S mega-hit leading to appearances on Ellen, The Today Show, Saturday Night Live, countless parodies and most recently, closing out the American Music Awards with MC Hammer. It has been viewed on YouTube over 800 million times with an astounding 7 million views per day and was recently crowned the most watched video on YouTube.

In November, TVK-Pop On Demand launched on Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks. The service is also available on Xfinity TV from Comcast and Cox Communications nationally.
