  • Dollar-consuming Touring Peformances Discouraged
    Performing arts can not shun the harsh and relentless austere policy under the IMF influence. The Ministry of Culture and Sports discouraged organizers and managers from inviting costly foreign artists and artistic groups in 1998. The ministry outlined its policy on the performing arts in 1998, in which the organizers were requested not to invite expensive foreign groups, and to make payment in Korean Won, not in foreign currency. It also asked them to cope with the economy crisis in general and drastic depreciation of Won in particular. (December 31)
