Meteor Strike Media hires only the best Korean translators, after having potential applicants undergo a rigorous multi-step screening process.
Our novel “Complete Localization” process guarantees at least six sets of eyes on every chapter, ensuring the original meaning of the work is preserved while properly resonating with Western audiences.
Our knowledge of the Western market, combined with our strategic business relationships and physical print distributors permit us to uniquely tailor our publishing and marketing strategies to each novel.
Meteor Strike Media’s custom platform, launching Q4 2020, will optimally monetize our licensed works while allowing customers to read on their desktop, tablet, or phone.
We Got Started Because We Want to Spread Korean Stories Across the World
In early 2019, most Korean translations were hosted on outdated blogs on the far reaches of the internet. These translations were done illegally and of subpar quality, resulting in a degeneration of the original work. Furthermore, these series could be stopped at any time by the original publisher enforcing their copyright, preventing fans from accessing potential stories.
Meteor Strike Media was founded in such an environment to change this narrative. We saw the potential Korean media has in the greater Western market, and have since dedicated ourselves to becoming the bridge eliminating these inefficiencies in this rapidly-expanding market.

Frequently Asked Questions
What services do you offer?
We offer complete localization to all works hosted under our banner. For novels that represent us, we quality check, market, and distribute our intellectual properties in-house. We also do contractual translation, with either direct translation or full localization as options.
How do we monetize our Intellectual Property?
For traditional web novels, we use our online platform complete with a built-in subscription service and advertisements for free users (with limited access to chapters). For web novels we turn into light novels, or volume-based content, we repackage these properties into Ebooks and print books.
Where is Meteor Strike Media located?
Meteor Strike Media, LLC is based in Virginia of the United States. However, we have representatives in California, Oregon, and Vancouver, Canada.
Do we need to meet in person to work together?
While it is recommended to meet in person, it is not strictly required. Updated copyright laws in both the United States and South Korea allow for intellectual property to be contracted and signed via Edocuments.
