East Asia Media Ecologies

New media is transforming the economic, political, legal, and everyday life of East Asia. In South Korea, video game tournaments made it to prime time television, whereas in North Korea, mobile phone users form secret networks. In China, the film box office is growing by over 30% every year while the Internet challenges the Party’s monopoly of information. In Japan, social networks substituted traditional news in the wake of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear catastrophe, while its popular culture spread all over Asia through fan-produced materials.
