If there is one thing peculiar to the creative industry, it is the impossibility of dictation. It is hard to dictate to inventive minds what they should or should not come up with. This is the hallmark of creativity. The animation industry is likewise a sector that a set of routine standards cannot pin down. As different people possess different creative potentials, they are also able to realise these potentials in different ways.
The animation movie industry is broad and has a whole lot of intrigues to it. The content that is produced vary and, in like manner, receives different levels of acceptance among the audience. Thus, while exploring, it is important to have the sector’s diverse nature at the front of a person’s mind.
However, this is also a benefit in itself. Diversity also means that the audience does not get too attached to one particular animation style but can pick and choose from different sources based on what they have come to think is nice. This makes the sector one that creates opportunities for all.
Collections of animation posters are a very interesting way to pass the time. The collections explore different timeliness of Korean history. There are stories of ancient kings and cultures which one way or the other, have shaped modern Korean values. The collections allow for multiple ranges of tastes to be explored depending on what they are interested in.
A person can be enthralled by famous war stories’ artistic renditions or get mesmerised by tales of court conspiracies and bureaucratic mischief. The unique feature of the animation collections is how well they attend to different tastes.
Also, the South Korean animation industry is not shy of new things either. From government-sponsored to private-run enterprise, dictating the next best trend is not up to any individual. On the streets, there are open displays of the South Korean animation industry.
Coloured buses and customised merchandise are the new order of the day in South Korea. Equally, no matter how young, people can set the pace for a new idea that will take the industry by storm.
Over the last decade, this acceptance of fresh players at the animation table has greatly increased the industry’s scope. Government support has backed creativity in so many ways, and the private sector is on its feet as well. There is, no doubt, enough room to do so for anyone who seeks to make a name here.
Once upon a time, South Korean enthusiasm for animation was largely influenced by Japanese counterparts. However, the years saw a rise in animations such as Kim Chong Gee’s Taekwon V. At the time, the South was still fired by an ideological zeal against the communist North. This brought about what was ostensibly a craft that reflected the trend at the time. The animation was made so that communists were shown as the bad guys, and the hero was the person hunting them. This was influential. It spurred interest in animations and saw them gain wide acceptance against their Japanese rivals. These old ones are also the lingering memories that Korean elders have today.
