  • A Turning Point in China’s Cultural Embargo on Korea; Promoting the ‘Good Hallyu’ Project to Socially Contribute in China with NCT DREAM


    The Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange and the CJ group co-hosted the ‘Good Hallyu Public-Private Partnership Project’ at Nanjing.

    The foundation has supported the ‘Good Hallyu Public-Private Partnership Project’ through collaborating with CJ Group, the Korea-China Amity Association, and the China Amity and Peace Fund since 2012 to promote international cultural exchange within the private sector. The purpose of this project is to offer socially marginalized children overseas a chance to enjoy cultural content, while promoting the image of Korea by expanding cultural exchange between the two countries.
