Now there's a president: The Korea Times looks at President Roh Moo-hyun's efforts to expand the country's cultural and economic influences:

"The administration is even looking at comics and games with fresh eyes, not regarding them as simple pastimes but as promising industries. A five-year-plan to promote the comic book industry was set in last May to develop the comic book market, which supplies contents for games and movies. It will also nurture the game industry, which could employ 100,000 people and take 5 percent market share in the world market."
