Kocowa, a streaming service that is a joint venture between the three major Korean broadcast networks: Korean Broadcasting System, Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation, and Seoul Broadcasting System, will arrive in Brazil on August 12th.

According to the Omelete variety site, exclusive content will include the so-called K-Dramas, South Korean soap operas, and variety shows subtitled in Portuguese.

During its launch, the company will feature 40 K-Dramas shows. According to Omelete, coming to Brazil is a response from the conglomerate to the #KocowaComeToBrazil campaign, which went viral on Twitter late in 2018 and was designed by the blog Além Do Que Se Vê (also known as ADQSV, the Portuguese acronym for the blog’s name that means “Beyond What You See”), which focuses on Asian culture.

Kocowa service plans cost an annual $38, a monthly $5, or less than $1 daily and can be paid with a national credit card or boleto bancário (the preferred cash payment method in Brazil that can be either a printed or a virtual voucher).

The service can be accessed through its site or through applications.
