KITTO goes beyond the mere translation and introduction of popular Korean content by delivering localized, high-quality content across every channel. Since its inception, the media has improved accessibility and user satisfaction, resulting in a current follower count of over 210,000. Remarkably, KITTO has quickly gained fame as a leading K-content account on Instagram within just six months of its opening.

Furthermore, it promotes a mutually beneficial relationship between content development and potential by co-creating content with leading K-trend partners.

KITTO has received critical acclaim from numerous users for its exclusive interviews and film works with prominent K-pop artists such as the groups ‘tripleS’ and ‘Kep1er’. In addition, it has presented competitive content by collaborating with various players such as the Korea Fashion Industry Association, fashion brand ‘STAND OIL’, accommodation booking platform ‘STAYFOLIO’ and travel content platform ‘Daytrip’, among others.

KITTO will strategically enrich visual treats for users and extend their useful life by offering diversified content that incorporates the versatile interests of local users. In addition, KITTO will actively engage with Thailand’s younger population, who are sensitive to entertainment and trends, through numerous SNS channels, through interactive content delivery, in addition to information sharing.

A KITTO official said: “Our continued efforts are aimed at realizing the goal of becoming a leading channel for Thailand’s MZ generation to access trending K content quickly and immersively. KITTO is committed to catalyzing the proliferation of K-content, especially within the fashion space, which shows significant growth potential not only within Thailand but also on a global scale.”
