The internet VOD service of Broasia.com will begin with the hit Taiwanese television drama series ‘Snow Angel(雪天使)’ and ‘Lavender(薰衣草).’ ‘Lavender,’ starring Ambrose Hsu(許紹洋) and Tammy Chen(陈怡蓉), is a love story about a girl with a heart disorder that meets her first love that grew to be a popular singer after having parted when they were young, while ‘Snow Angel,’ starring TORO, Margaret Wang(王宇婕）, and Johnny Yang(顏行書), is about two brothers who part when they are young and later fall in love with one girl without knowing they are related. IMX America chose to launch with Taiwanese content in hopes of expressing the goals of providing a variety of content ranging from throughout Asia and not limited to Korean and Japanese content.
IMX, since its establishment in 2001, has been providing Asian content, starting with Korean, to Japan and has played a major role in the introduction and distribution of Korean content throughout Asia. ‘Brokore’ (http://www.brokore.com), managed and operated by IMX, first introduced Korean television dramas to Japan via the internet, while the company also provides management for the Hallyu star Bae Yong Joon(裵勇俊) as well as So Ji Sub(蘇志燮), Son Ye Jin(孫藝眞), Kim Tei (NHK Korean announcer), and Taiwanese actor Mike He(He Jun Xiang/賀軍翔).
