about KOCCA

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!

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.

Beijing Office

Greetings from the KOCCA Beijing Business Center!

China has achieved the positive growth rate among major economies amid the coronavirus crisis. Also, China as a country with a large population, a continuous economic growth is expected in the future. The Chinese government is aware of the importance of cultural contents as a means of national integration, and is playing an active role in supporting the development of local content development capability.

Many countries around the world recognize the potential of the content industry related to the online market, and are fostering it as a core industry. Korea and China share many similarities in history and culture. The two countries are natural partners in co-developing projects related to their culture and creative content industries, but there is a possibility of competition. China may be an opportunity and an unexpected barrier at the same time.

The Beijing Business Center will serve as the bridge connecting Korean and Chinese culture and creative content for the mutual benefit of both countries. Our center will strive to be the leading location that supports Korean culture and creative content in effectively entering the Chinese market. As a result, our work will benefit both Korea and China in advancing culture and creative businesses on a global scale.

Thank you.

  2. 02. Local networking for Korean companies

    We support Korean businesses by establishing networks with related information agencies in China; by establishing networks with related Chinese enterprises; and by establishing networks with the media and other relevant organizations in China.

  3. 03. Vitalize Marketing

    We support the participation of Korean businesses in various exhibitions and/or fairs held in China; support marketing activities by establishing promotion networks in China; and support a strategic and focused marketing approach for core genres and contents.

  4. 04. Trend Reports

    We publish trend reports for each genre and term by collecting relevant information on the culture industry in China. The reports are available on the KOCCA website as well as in offline centers.

  5. 05. Handling Requests from Korean Businesses

Japan Office

Greetings from the KOCCA Japan Business Center!

Japan is the third largest economy in the world and is also recognized for its third largest global creative content market. Japan has been an extremely important market for Korean creative content ever since the introduction of the Korean drama “Winter Sonata” in 2003. Since that first hit, a variety of creative content in K-pop, gaming, comics, and animation have entered the Japan market at a rapid pace.

Japan is a country of various cultures, but with the strong flow of its own indigenous creative content, it has not been easy for foreign companies to break through into the market. However, through narrow windows of opportunities, Korean creative content has continuously entered the Japanese market and is much adored by Japanese audiences. We believe that this is partly due to the continuous support of all content suppliers and stakeholders in Japan.

Despite the often challenging relationship between Korea and Japan, consumers from both countries have continued to love and enjoy each other’s creative content. We take particular pride in playing a crucial role in delivering the joys of entertainment to both sides of Korean and Japanese audiences.

Our business center will continue to assist and support the active exchange of creative content between Korea and Japan. We will continue providing and supporting high quality creative content that consumers from both countries can continue to love and enjoy.

Thank you.

  1. 01. Collect and Provide Information

    We collect information and data to help Korean businesses better understand the Japanese content industry.

  2. 02. Distribute Cultural Content

    We identify the distribution system of the Japanese content industry and seek for partnership opportunities with Korean businesses.

  3. 03. Total consulting

    We provide a total consulting service that supports the overall process for Korean content entering into the Japanese market from promotion to marketing consulting.

  4. 04. Exchange of Culture Industry

    We promote the culture industry for both countries by participating in local Japanese fairs, exhibitions, investment briefings, seminars, etc.

  5. 05. Support Strategic Partnerships

    We support Korean Businesses in signing strategic partnerships such as planning to enter into third country markets by co-producing content products between Korea and Japan.
