“It's a true honor to win such an award and it really shows the exponential growth of Korean entertainment, “ responded Johnny Noh CEO of 6Theory Media. “We are extremely excited to be at the forefront of spreading the Korean wave on a global scale.”
The Mashable Awards recognize the year’s best of tech and the web as voted by the Mashable community who cast more than 1.3 million nominations and votes in 25 categories including "Best New Gadget", "Best Music Discovery Service" and "Must-Follow Brand,” among others.
