YesStyle Presents "aka DAN" Documentary Series Premiering Worldwide in March 2014

LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YesStyle, the leading online Asian fashion retailer and owner and operator of retail website YesStyle.com, is proud to present "aka DAN", a documentary series starring musician Dan Matthews. Produced by Mayrok Media in association with Arirang TV, the 4-part series "aka DAN" follows Matthews, a Korean American adoptee, as he searches for and reunites with his biological Korean family, including his twin brother who he never knew existed. The series premieres on March 6, 2014 on multiple media platforms, both broadcast and online.

Dan Matthews says about "aka DAN": "The documentary deals with issues of identity, family and culture, so everyone can relate to this story." Also known by his stage name DANakaDAN, Matthews was adopted and raised in a small town in Southern California. "aka DAN" depicts Matthews as he researches his true heritage and finally embarks on a journey to South Korea. In each of the episodes, Matthews wears clothing available from YesStyle, some of which was delivered to South Korea during filming in 2013. Matthews also wore YesStyle clothing at the red carpet premiere of "aka DAN" in February 2014.

The YesStyle.com retail website was created in 2006 in order to provide worldwide customers with high-quality and affordable fashion items from Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other Asian territories. In keeping with their support of Asian art and culture, YesStyle regularly sponsors Asian and Asian American artists, and has supported shows featuring Korea's Super Junior and Wonder Girls, Taiwan's Show Luo and Hong Kong's Eason Chan. YesStyle also works regularly with Asian American filmmaking group Wong Fu Productions and YouTube musicians David Choi and Clara C.

"akaDAN" presents a fortuitous synergy between YesStyle, Dan Matthews and other Asian American artists. Also on March 6, Dan Matthews releases a new album entitled "Stuntman" that features collaborations with David Choi and Clara C. Along with hip hop group Far East Movement, Wong Fu Productions co-created ISAtv, a YouTube channel and Asian American entertainment network among the first outlets to broadcast "aka DAN".

Dan Matthews said, "I am very thankful for YesStyle's support in this documentary. We've carefully selected the partners we will work with, and YesStyle with its support for the arts and entertainment initiatives of Asian Americans is a perfect match."

Besides on ISAtv, "aka DAN" premieres on March 6 on Dramafever, an online video service that delivers premium television shows and movies from 70 major broadcasters and studios worldwide via streaming and over-the-top devices; Hulu, the popular over-the-top service offering on-demand streaming of video content; and Arirang TV, a Korean TV network distributed in over 100 million households worldwide.
