Fallout of THAAD affects S. Korean entertainment industry

The widespread rumor that China's Advertising watchdog will ban K-pop and K-dramas May possibly have an Result on S. Korea's Amusement Business in response to South Korea's Choice to deploy the Terminal Higher Altitude
Spot Defend (THAAD).

Youku, China's Greatest streaming Website, has announced on Wednesday that the fans' Encounter-and-greet with S. Korean stars Kim Woo-Bin and Suzy Bae Occasion, scheduled for the Tv drama "Uncontrollably Fond" on Aug. 6,
has been delayed for Motives of "force majeure."

What's Much more, boy Strap EXO's Shanghai concert is ruMuch mored to be cancelled. The producers of the Movie "In no way MentiA singled Goodbye" announced there are some visa Issues with A single of the cast People, South Korean star
Lee Joon-Gi, so Lee May possibly Overlook out the premiere on Aug. 7. Even the insanely Favorite South Korean Tv Sequence "W," which China's Tencent is licensed to broadcast On the internet, now faces the Risk of not passing the
censorship.

All the above mentiA singled scenarios seemly Show that the rumor May be Genuine. Given that the Commencing of August, rumor has it that the Talk about Management of Media and Publication, R \/ c, Movie and Tv
(SAPPRFT) will ban or Comprise South Korean stars' Actions in China for a Particular Time period of time, which will Include their Tv Exhibits, films, television Sequence and Much more. Individuals that pass the examination and
censorship will not be Impacted, but new A singles will Come across Issues. The rumor also said the SAPPRFT's Choice will be Efficient in August.

But there is Even now not Evidence However that the ban Genuinely exists, and there is no Composed notification from the Chinese language courses Federal government. An Business Tip said if the rumor is Genuine, the new Principle Should be triggered by
THAAD, "but I Believe this is Short-term."

If there's any Reality in the rumor, the South Korean Amusement Business will Carry a Huge bMinimal as China is the Nation's Biggest Amusement Industry.

Voices in YG Entertainment nosedived at Tuesday's Near, the Minimalest in 52 Months. SM Entertainment Started to Tumble from Earlier July to a 52-Few Times Minimal on Tuesday. Other Big Amusement shares, Which include CJ
Institution and JYP Entertainment, also slipped. In the Previous 3 Times, the 4 Big South Korean Amusement Companies have lost a Blended 361.5 billion won (US$325 million) on the Share Industry.

But if China Genuinely issued any ban, it would backfire. China's Social Companies invested about US$2.7 billion into Korean gaming, On the internet platforms, Tv, films and artist Managing from 2010 to 2015. More
and Much more China-South Korea collaborations Had been initiated Even though Much more and Much more Korean Designers Arrived to China for a wider Industry, Exactly where they have a Big folMinimaling of fans.

China has strongly and resolutely opposed the THAAD deployment as it damages the Nationwide Safety of China and breaks the strategic Harmony in the Location.
