In Transnational Korean Cinema author Dal Yong Jin explores the interactions of local and global politics, economics, and culture to contextualize the development of Korean cinema and its current place in an era of neoliberal globalization and convergent digital technologies.

The book emphasizes the economic and industrial aspects of the story, looking at questions on the interaction of politics and economics, including censorship and public funding, and provides a better view of the big picture by laying bare the relationship between film industries, the global market, and government. Jin also sheds light on the operations and globalization strategies of Korean film industries alongside changing cultural policies in tandem with Hollywood's continuing influences in order to comprehend the power relations within cultural politics, nationally and globally. This is the first book to offer a full overview of the nascent development of Korean cinema.

Reviews

"The most comprehensive book available on South Korean Cinema, covering the complexities of the Korean film industry from 1919 onwards, both as an art form and as a business. It is destined to become required reading for anyone interested in Korean cinema especially in relation to the link between politics, economics and cultural expression."

"An ambitious, well-researched book that details how the complex interplay between cultural policy, socioeconomic development, competition with Hollywood and technological change led to the remarkable growth and increasing global reach of Korean cinema."
