Eccho Rights have concluded deals with Sweden’s TV4 and Finland's MTV3 for a package of premium Korean Drama series.
Both platforms have picked up three action-packed thrillers from Eccho Rights, TRAP and STRANGERS FROM HELL produced by CJ ENM, and TAXI DRIVER from SBS.
TV4 and MTV3 become the first local broadcasters in their respective countries to acquire South Korean content.
“Eccho Rights has long been championing the extraordinary creativity and quality in the Korean drama industry, so it is no surprise to us that demand for these series is taking off around the world,” says Lucy Roberts, Director of Sales, Western Europe at Eccho Rights.
Eccho Rights established its Seoul office in 2017. Since December 2018 the distributor has been majority owned by leading entertainment company, CJ ENM, best known for its Oscar-winning sensation "Parasite". In addition to its popular original television productions, CJ ENM's entertainment division engages in a wide array of businesses across the industry spectrum including media content, film, performing arts, and animation.
“With a strong presence in Seoul and close relationships with every media and broadcast group in South Korea, Eccho Rights is in a unique position to provide Korean content to broadcasters and VOD platforms worldwide, looking to acquire the best K Dramas for their markets,” says Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director at Eccho Rights.
