South Korea Has Entered A K-Game Era

At the mention of South Korea, most people must instantly think of Korean teleplay and Korean stars. They are collectively known as K-Pop (short for Korea-Pop) and enjoy a high reputation worldwide.

But according to reliable data, the output value of the K-Game (Korean game) industry is 14 times as much as that of K-Pop industry. K-Game has become the new pillar industry of South Korea and opened up overseas markets at an annual 50% growth rate of export volume.

K-Game is currently the most potential and fastest growing industry in South Korea.

And from hands-on experience Vindictus is one of the best playing and best looking games I've ever played, period.

Damn, UK needs to get behind our game devs instead of just hindering progress -_- there's a ton £££ that we're missing out on here.
