IZO Asia Forum Keynote by Dong Yeon Won: "Korean Film and Television -  Competitiveness and Future Prospects"

After the first successful IZO Asia Forum in 2019 and an involuntary break due to the pandemic, we are pleased to be able to hold the second Asia Forum in Frankfurt in July 2023. This year, the event will focus on Korea and the global appeal of Korean culture.

Korean film and streaming formats have been becoming increasingly popular in recent history, with South Korea becoming one of the international media industry key players. What are the reasons and mechanisms behind this success story? And what might the future hold? These questions and more will be tackled by Dong Yeon Won in his keynote Korean Film and Television – Competitiveness and Future Prospects. As film producer and CEO of “Realies pictures", he gives insight into the industry and talks about his experience surrounding the production of internationally successful formats such as Along With the Gods and Masquerade. The keynote is part of the Asia Forum 2023, organized by IZO – Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Ostasienstudien together with the research initiative ConTrust: Trust in Conflict and the joint research project CEDITRAA (Cultural Entrepreneurship and Digital Transformation in Africa and Asia) at Goethe University Frankfurt. The talk will take place on July 6th 2023 at 6:15 p.m. at the Renate von Metzler-Saal at Casino Westend with a reception at 17.30. Admission is free, the talk is in Korean and English | |
