This amendment, which reflects the legislation of Cho’s legislation, is the definition of ‘culture and arts’, and in addition to the way of listing genres such as literature, art, and music, the core attributes of culture and arts are defined as general expressions, and ‘cultural arts’ It includes adding game, animation and musical ‘genre.

Representative Cho Seung-rae proposed an amendment to add games to the scope of the Culture and Arts in November 20.

Mr. Cho is emerging as a comprehensive art that combines various art genres such as video, art, novels, and music, and is already paying attention as a new art genre to lead the 21st century culture and art paradigm in developed countries. In Korea, the negative perception of the game that has been continuing for a long time has been treated only as a subject of regulation, not the subjects to support and foster.
