Gov't to Digitize Cultural Content

2009/04/16 | 349 views | Permalink | Source

The government has designated nine cultural stories it will finance for digitization development in order to enhance the exposure of Korean cultural content.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said Thursday that four of the nine are based on Korean ancient history. The ministry plans to first develop this year a story of the Buddhist monk "Wonhyo" and provide it to the public on the Internet.

The ministry also designated five other stories for development as global digitized cultural content, including a drama based on the histories of ten ancient cultural assets of the Silla Dynasty.

The ministry added that it will designate two more stories for digitization.
