SAN BRUNO, Calif., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- YA Entertainment LLC, the exclusive licensee and publisher of popular Korean TV drama programming on DVD with English subtitles in North America, today releases "Brilliant Legacy." "Brilliant Legacy" is YA Entertainment's 90th Korean TV drama release since 2003.
"Back in 2003 when we released our very first Korean TV drama on DVD, I had no idea how big this would become in the USA," says Tom Larsen, president of YA Entertainment. "I was personally a big fan of Korean TV dramas. I knew the storylines were great and all the production aspects were top-notch. But I wasn't sure how general mainstream audiences in the USA would respond to Korean TV programs with English subtitles. Well, seven years and 90 releases later, overall demand is as strong as ever. Not only do we have large, established customer bases in places like California, New York, and Hawaii, we are seeing strong growth in the Midwest and the Southeast. All my original expectations have been exceeded."
"Brilliant Legacy" tells the story of a young, hardworking girl named Eun-sung who goes from riches to rags when her father suddenly passes away and her duplicitous stepmother devises an evil plan. In a series of twists and turns, the owner of a large food company, Mrs. Jang, decides to groom Eun-sung to become her corporate successor. Sparks fly when Mrs. Jang's family goes head-to-head with Eun-sung over their inheritance. YA Entertainment's "Brilliant Legacy" DVD set includes all 28 episodes, English subtitles, and over two hours of special features.
Korean TV drama fans can keep up to date on all upcoming DVD releases by signing up to YA Entertainment's monthly e-newsletter at www.yaentertainment.com. "We are already looking forward to releasing our 100th title on DVD sometime in early 2011," says Larsen. "But right now, my family and I are very much enjoying Brilliant Legacy."
