After Six-year Long Suspension, China Resumes Streaming South Korean Content


Beijing: The Chinese streaming platform has resumed distributing South Korean content, officials said on Tuesday.

China’s streaming site Tencent began distributing a film by South Korean director Hong Sang-soo, “Hotel by the River,” earlier this month, the officials said.

Kim Eun-hye, Yoon’s press secretary, said the South Korean president has stressed the need to promote cultural and people-to-people exchanges at the meeting, and the change at TenCent appeared to be a “response” from Beijing.

Relations between South Korea and China have been frayed in recent years following the installation in South Korea of the THAAD system in 2017 to better counter North Korea’s evolving missile threats.
