On weekdays, South Korean tech company Naver Corp's new headquarters near Seoul resembles a scene straight out of a science-fiction movie, with some 40 robots ambling across floors and delivering parcels and Starbucks coffee to humans. Crucially for Naver, the Rookies' brains are stored in the cloud and connected to the robots via a private superfast 5G network. While the robots seem to be doing their jobs well, senior Naver executives are cautious on the commercial future of the fledgling robot business, on which the company has already invested $550 million, as 5G technology presents challenges.
Singapore’s MAS keeps the bar high for licenses, leading to the withdrawal of South Korea’s Kakao and Naver from the Republic.
Netflix's most-watched series in late November, "Hellbound", is making a splash on TV, but it first appeared on much smaller screens as an online comic, or "webtoon", optimised for smartphones. The webtoon format, which began in Korea two decades ago, has shaken up content creation for the movie industry around the globe. With relatively few overhead costs, webtoons have become a gold mine for tens of thousands of visual stories, with a growing number of adaptations on streaming services such as Netflix, Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus.
