Posted on Mar 24, 2016

Following on the letter of intent signed in November 2015 by Naver’s CEO Kim Sang-heon and France’s Minister of Culture and Communication Fleur Pellerin, the Institut Français and the Embassy of France in Seoul launched the French Cast yesterday on Naver TVcast. With the year of France in Korea starting this month, the Institut Français and the Embassy of France in Seoul want to broaden the perception of France in Korea by immersing Koreans in France’s rich culture.

The French Cast is the first video channel in Korea to be entirely dedicated to France, offering Korean subtitled videos on various topics such as culture, sport, tourism, etc. With new videos uploaded regularly, the French Cast aims to give Koreans access to high-quality and exclusive contents to widen their vision of France.

Hosted on Naver TVcast, the channel is accessible anytime, anywhere and on any support: mobile, tablet, and desktop. With 24 million Koreans using Naver from their smartphone monthly, the Institut Français and the Embassy of France in Seoul intend to bring a bit of France into their life.

Asiance is working with the Institut Français and the Embassy of France in Seoul to promote the French Cast channel in Korea. Stay tuned for new videos and exclusive events in the upcoming months!
