Chairman, Korea Communications Commission


" I am very pleased Korea is being celebrated as the Country of Honour at the world's largest content market to showcase outstanding Korean content. With the exponential rise of new media like Over-the-top platforms during the COVID-19 pandemic, broadcasting has become a promising industry that could create new opportunities in the stay-at-home era.

Korean content is rewriting history in various sectors such as drama, K-Pop and movies. Now, just like the slogan of the event, "Korea, Story Connects Us,” it is time for Korea to join hands with the world and create a cooperation model in various broadcasting sectors such as content production and distribution. "
