A total of 19 networks and production firms -- including KBS, MBC, SBS and CJ E&M -- and 15 animation studios, including Samg Animation, Synergy Media and Aurora World, will co-run a joint South Korean booth at the MIPTV 2017 slated for Monday to Thursday in Cannes, the Korea Creative Content Agency said.
