The lifting of the China Hallyu ban may have or will soon happen as C-ent is reporting on some recent activity. Park Seo Joon attended a CF event in China and Chanyeol is scheduled to do one, whereas for the last two years there have been very few and far between media appearances by K-stars in China. Also on the airing calendar for fall 2018 is two dramas filmed over three years ago but shelved indefinitely once the Hallyu ban came into effect in September 2016. Park Min Young and Hans Zhang‘s Ming dynasty perid drama Braveness of the Ming and Lee Jong Seok and Zheng Shuang‘s Republic era period drama Jade Lover are both slated to finally air on Chinese television. The Hallyu ban primarily affected the televised broadcast of Korean dramas and appearance by Korean stars on television, but with the younger generations all consuming media online it hasn’t really affected the spread of Hallyu to China during the ban period. It has affected how much licensing revenue the production teams can command for K-dramas but like all financial crunches the industry has managed to buckled down and make it through.
