Klout.com, the definitive source and standard for measuring the online influence of users/brands on social media, ranked allkpop® as the #3 Top Influencer, only behind Andy Cohen and Charlie Sheen, in the Entertainment category.
The ranking which is calculated once every 90 days, is a huge testament to the popularity of KPOP as a genre and how allkpop®, the world’s largest and most popular KPOP site, created a global fan base for the KPOP genre worldwide – A genre which was nearly non-existent 5 years ago.
6Theory Media CEO, Johnny Noh stated, “When we first launched allkpop.com, our goal was to introduce KPOP to the world, a genre which I loved dearly but was literally unknown by everyone else. It’s amazing to see how much we have been able to grow the KPOP genre worldwide – We started from hundreds of fans a month to now millions, but we still have a long way to go. We will get there however.”
In 2007, Edgewater, NJ based 6Theory Media set out to spread Asian Entertainment worldwide, and in 5 years, has created a worldwide phenomenon, with total network traffic reaching over 6 million readers a month.
