Eugene Choi and Allen Lee are the Co-Founders of Collab Asia. Eugene started his career in advertising, later worked at Korean media giant CJ E&M, and then worked on a number of independent projects in the digital media space. Allen, on the other hand, started out in finance and corporate development within the entertainment industry, initially working with more traditional studios before transitioning to digital.
In this episode, we examine digital media’s explosive growth in Asia, from emerging markets like China and Indonesia to more established territories like Korea and Japan. We discuss the competitive landscape in APAC after several recent acquisitions, assess the performance of MCNs that have gone public (Brave Bison, UUUM, and Yeah1), and highlight examples of innovation throughout Asia. Finally, Eugene and Allen explain what most Americans misunderstand about Asia and share their takeaways from VidCon 2019.
