Korean formats have made their mark on Saturday night TV in the UK with hits including ITV’s The Masked Singer and BBC One’s I Can See Your Voice

How did these shows come about and why is the UK TV industry looking to Korea for its next big hit?

We’ll hear from programme makers, broadcasters and sales chiefs in the UK and Korea to find out how those shows travelled here and were adapted for a UK market. We’ll also find out just how ideas have thrived in Korean TV and hear about the hit series which could be heading our way next.
