Korea and China sign MoU to produce three documentariesKorea and China signed a memorandum of understanding yesterday to increase cooperation in broadcast and digital content.
Although the two countries are rivals in the field, the Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning and China’s State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television agreed to jointly develop digital content at a forum held yesterday night at the Westin Chosun Hotel in central Seoul.
The MoU includes production of two co-funded documentaries: one about the Imjin War, when the Japanese invaded Korea between 1592 and 1598, and another about climate change in Northeast Asia. The films will cost 3 billion won ($2.97 million) and will be produced by Chinese state-run broadcaster CCTV and Korea’s two largest terrestrial channels, KBS and MBC.
