2014 Plan of Programs for the Media & Public Relations Center

Regular publications

The Foundation’s regular publications include Koreana, a quarterly magazine that introduces readers to the culture and arts of Korea, in nine languages. In addition, the monthly webzine Korea Focus (www.koreafocus.or.kr) provides a wide variety of information about Korea’s current affairs.

Support for Korea-related publications

Four additional volumes of the Korea Essentials series will be published in 2014. This series offers basic information about Korean culture, in an easy-to-understand style, for general readers. The themes of previous volumes have been related to hangeul, pottery, taekwondo, and hanbok, etc. In addition, the Foundation provides program support for the publication of books on Korea in foreign languages.

Promotion of e-book content

The Foundation creates and provides e-book access for its various publications so that this content can be read on mobile devices, like smartphones and tablets. This mobile access helps to further boost understanding of Korea by enabling readers worldwide to more conveniently access Korea-related information.

Distribute video content on Korea worldwide

The Foundation distributes a variety of video content for its broadcast to foreign viewers and for the screening of Korean movies at diplomatic missions in selected countries in order to introduce Korean culture to general audiences. In 2014, Korean dramas, dubbed in Spanish and French, will be distributed to broadcasters in Central/South America and the Francophone countries of Africa. In addition, we will continue to support the efforts of diplomatic missions to present Korean film festivals and special screenings of the Korean films shown at international film festivals.

Korea-related reference materials

To promote the Korea-related education, research and other activities, the Foundation supports the distribution of reference materials on Korea to universities, public libraries, and research institution overseas, along with providing assistance so that relevant institutions can subscribe to various Korea-related database systems at a lower cost. In addition, we extend support to the Korean Collections Consortium of North America (KCCNA) and offer a support program for Libraries with Korean Studies Collections so that their Korean Studies materials can be made available to users and administered in a more systemic manner, thereby enabling these libraries to develop into vital resource centers for the advancement of Korean Studies.
