South Korea will launch a drama series called “Korean Dramatic” that will cover the countrys political, cultural and economic history.
The show, which will be produced by KBS Entertainment and broadcast by the country’s largest public television channel, will focus on the drama that is currently happening in the country.
“This is the beginning of a new era for South Korea,” President Moon Jae-in told reporters Thursday during a press conference in Seoul.
“The new generation of people will watch dramas with a new perspective and will become a part of the new dramas.”
Moon said the show will “explore the politics of the Korean Peninsula and the country as a whole.”KBS Entertainment is the parent company of KBS TV, which is owned by JTBC and has aired the hit dramas “The Amazing Race” and “The Idolmaster.”
The two networks have recently become a major part of South Korea’s media landscape with popular dramas such as “My Love from the North” and a new reality series, “My Best Friend’s Boyfriend.”
The shows are also viewed as an important source of news for the South Korean population.
South Korea has a long history of popular culture and has been one of the biggest markets for Korean films and TV shows.
In the past decade, KBS has become a key source of entertainment for the country, with popular shows including “Love Live!” and “My Hero Academia” being available on a number of streaming services.
In 2016, South Korea hosted the first International Film Festival, the KBS Animation Film Festival and the Kbs TV Animation Film and Music Festival.
The South Korean government also recently announced the country would hold its own International Festival of Korean Film and Television.
