For the second Asia Forum, which CEDITRAA co-organises with the Interdisciplinary Centre for East Asian Studies (IZO) and the ConTrust research initiative at Goethe University Frankfurt, we are looking forward to a public lecture by one of Korea’s most famous film producers, Dong Yeon Won.
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.
