The South Korean government is aiming to more than double content exports, to $25 billion by 2027. Film and drama producers will get financial and infrastructural support from the government. For instance, Studio Cube in Daejeon, where Squid Game was filmed, will be equipped with underwater cinematographic facilities. Separately, the ministry will provide training to 10,000 prospective content creators across the country over the next three years. Besides state reserves, the government will also lean on global capital from foreign investors.
