Starting from the drama-drama show, a very innovative talk show program, to the variety show program that is not less creative. After the live, popularity instantly invaded. This is what makes the various works of the "Ginseng Country" is always traced or imitated by foreign parties.

When his various works are traced, the production team of TV programs can not move and do anything. Due to international lawsuits requiring long periods of time and few cases are resolved.

"Although the situation is like this (many cases of plagiarism), the government does not respond properly, the problem is that many ministries have to work together to solve this problem and no resources have been collected yet," said Lee Dong Sub.

The bill will come into force on July 31. This will be the basis for South Korea's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to request cooperation from the head of the central administration body such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to protect South Korean original works.
