Sleeping with the Intimate ‘Enemy’? Dynamics and Precarities of Chinese co-productions in the case of the ‘Korea Ban’

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

In July 2016, Beijing denounced the Korean American collaboration of the spy missile “THAAD.” Soon after, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film, and Television (SAPPRFT), the official censoring body in the mainland China, announced an all-out ban on a range of trade, events, and practices involving Korean media productions, visits of Korean celebrities, and even collaborations with Korea. The “Korea ban,” which has been named such ever since, to date has not been officially announced but is still casting its long shadows on the media industry in China and ground any forms of co-production between China and South Korea to a halt.
