Korea Creative Content Agency announced that its annual, open seminar Content Insight will be held at the Content Human Resource Campus, in Hongreung, Dongdaemun-gu, central Seoul, on March 30.

Content Insight invites popular creative content experts to share their thoughts on the current and future trends of the Korean content business.

Director Kang Yun-sung, who helmed the hit crime films “The Outlaws” (2017), “The Roundup” (2022) and Disney+’s noir series “Big Bet” -- which came to an end on Wednesday -- is scheduled to talk about Korean content being promoted on the global stage, according to KOCCA.

Author Kim Bo-tong, a celebrated webtoon creator who is behind both the webtoon and Netflix series “D.P.,” will offer his insights on why webtoon series have become one of the most sought-after IPs in South Korea’s creative content business today.

South Korean AI firm Vaiv Company’s vice president and big data expert Song Kil-young seeks to explore the future and upcoming trends related to Korea’s creative content.

The seminar begins at 4 p.m., and Korean indie bands Jackingcong and Jisokury Club will perform at 6:20 p.m. at the KOCCA Content Culture Square -- a two-minute walk from the Content Human Resource Campus.

Online reservations can be made at www.event-us.kr/kocca01/event/59145 until 6 p.m. on March 29.

On-site admission is also available starting at 3:30 p.m. on March 30.
