South Korea’s Minister of Culture and Sports held Q & A at the Ankara Korean Cultural Center
Q: Will there be any Korea-Turkey joint film projects in the future?
A: There isn’t any projects like this yet but I like Nobel winner and Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk, so I would like to see his books made into a film in Korea.
Q: Is there a chance to see Kpop artists filming their MVs in Turkey?
A:Why not? If you can show that you love and support them then they will answer you for sure.
Q: We want to watch Korean dramas on our national TV channels. Are there any plans about this?
A: In Turkey we usually see historical dramas on TV but now we’ve started to see some youth dramas too. (Dream High) As long as the ratings are high then I believe you can watch many dramas on TV. You should show your support to Korean dramas and Korean stars so you can get the attention of producers.
Q: In 2012 will Turkey be able to host Kpop concerts?
A: At the beginning of 2012, Kim Jaejoong visited Turkey. We also want Turkey and Korea to be in a good cultural relationship.
Q: What we can do to make people know more about the Korean sport, Taekwondo?
A: I learnt that there are more than 300.000 Taekwondo students in Turkey. In the near future you can take Taekwondo lessons from Korean teachers.
Q: What should Turkish students do to go to Korea for education?
A: First, you should learn Korean. I believe any successful student can go Korea for education.

Thanks minister, but I will prefer it if you can actually DO something about the situation IN Korea.
What is currently being on show there is shameless and just plain disgusting. Big companies banning 3 young amazing and talented artists while promoting lesser idols are just a huge no-no.
Also please ask those companies if they are scared….scared of 3 young men who are not afraid to fight for what they believe is right.
….well said sister !! we need ACTION in JYJ situation !
i second that…
It’s really saddening and ironic, that S. Korea Culture & Sports are using JYJ for international promotion when back to their own country, this artist are banned from all broadcasting station…
this is really a misleading promotion of their country… how can you use JYJ, when in truth you banned them from you’re own broadcasting stations?
If you’d like to use them/JYJ as your ambassadors for international promotions… better fix your own national entertainment not to ban the group…
