"We've proven that our model works in the U.S. and abroad, and see the Asian markets as an important focus for future growth. The investment from SK Telecom Americas is validation of our approach, as well as fuel and guidance as we develop our Asian market strategy. We look forward to working together to extend The Real World Online across the Pacific."
