첫 번째 소식은 얼마 전 미국 LA에서 열린 KCON 2023입니다. 케이콘은 이미 많은 매체들이 다뤘습니다.

엔터테크 전문 다이렉트미디어랩은 현재 유일한 해외 진출 스트리밍 서비스 플랫폼 코코와+(KOCOWA+)에 대한 소식을 전합니다. 코코와+는 한국콘텐츠진흥원과 함께 한국 콘텐츠 팬들의 만나 ‘K콘텐츠 퀴즈쇼’를 진행했습니다. 또 LA 현지 유명 음악 라디오와 협업해 K팝과 K콘텐츠를 사랑하는 현지 팬들을 만났습니다.

이 행사를 다루는 이유는 한국 스트리밍 플랫폼의 글로벌화 위해 매우 중요한 이벤트라고 판단하기 때문입니다. 한국 콘텐츠가 해외 오디언스를 만나기 위해선 우리를 데려다 줄 플랫폼도 필수입니다. 코코와+는 그 작업을 시작했습니다.
