KOCCA Introduction

The Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA), a governmental agency that oversees and coordinates the promotion of the Korean content industry, was established in May 2009 by integrating five related organizations, including the Korean Broadcasting Institute, the Korea Culture & Content Agency, and the Korea Game Agency.

KOCCA is headquartered in Naju, the so-called “culture and art city” of Jeolla Province, which is also known for its abundance of white pear flowers in full bloom every March.

Greeting

Greetings!
I am Young-Jun Kim, the president of the Korea Creative Contents Agency (KOCCA).

It has almost been 10 years since the KOCCA was integrated and founded in 2009 under the national vision of ‘becoming the world's 5 greatest content powers'.

During the meantime, a lot of new things have been happening. The sales of the South Korean content industry used to be only 67 trillion KRW and now it has grown to 110 trillion KRW over the period of time.
The amount of export of the content industry, which was only $2.6 billion, has grown to $6.7 billion. Additionally, the domestic and foreign environments around the South Korean content industry have improved beyond our imagination. It means that the role and the responsibility of the KOCCA have become more important.

We have carefully examined ourselves - whether KOCCA has fulfilled its role and responsibilities and whether we have neglected the changes and developments or not.

We will make ourselves new again.
We will actively seek after our responsibilities and fulfill our duties to enrich everyone's daily life with contents.

We will listen to the smallest voice in the field to create a people-oriented content industry that focuses on fair, mutual benefit, communication, and empathy.
We will enhance the global competitiveness of the South Korean content industry through new Korean wave strategy focusing on new contents.
We will increase the diversity of the content industry and contribute to the balanced development of regions by actively cultivating the local contents industry.

The 4th Industrial Revolution will shift the paradigm of the content industry completely.
The KOCCA will provide active support to the South Korean content industry so we can adjust to this gigantic shift.
We will be the agency that people can trust and that the content industry supports.

Please do not hesitate to reach us for any feedback about our performance in the future.

Thank you.

March 2018
Young-Jun Kim
