China's main streaming platform is showing Korean films again after the recent summit between presidents Yoon Suk-yeol and Xi Jinping, the presidential office here said Tuesday.
It is the first time Korean movies have been shown online in China since an unofficial boycott in 2017 over the stationing of a Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense battery from the U.S. here.
Presidential spokeswoman Kim Eun-hye told reporters Tuesday that Yoon "stressed the importance of cultural exchanges" when he met Xi last week, "and Xi agreed."
Yoon talked about the rapid growth in bilateral relations over the past three decades and reiterated the importance of expanding civilian exchanges.
"Hotel by the River," a 2018 film by Hong Sang-soo, is the first to become available on Tencent Video.
