Audiovisual Services in Korea: Market Development and Policies

Published By: ADBI on eSS | Published Date: April, 12 , 2012

This paper reviews economic development and the regulatory environment of audiovisual services in the Republic of Korea (hereafter, Korea). The paper specifically examines motion pictures and broadcasting, and discusses what drives or hinders the sector’s trade potential. Korean motion pictures have benefited greatly from the elimination of government censorship, substantial investment capital, especially from the 1990s, and frequent invitations from prestigious international movie festivals. The trade potential of Korean audiovisual services depends on whether Korean audiovisual services providers create high quality content that can be shared locally and/or universally.
