A survey finds that South Korean teenagers spend two hours a day watching online broadcasts streamed by individual creators, with YouTube being the most popular platform.

The Korea Communications Standards Commission on Sunday released the results of a survey on over one thousand teenagers aged between 13 and 18 across the nation last year.

According to the poll, South Korean teenagers spent 114-point-nine minutes every day watching such online video content.

By platform, YouTube accounted for 36-point-four percent, followed by AfreecaTV with 16-point-eight percent and Twitch with 16-point-six percent.

Twenty-two-point-seven percent of the respondents said they enjoy watching gaming-related content, while about 20 percent were interested in food-related programs. Other major areas of interest included talk shows, beauty programs and music streaming.
