A: As a medium so that viewers have the choice to also watch online and can reach more. Vidio is also one of the right platforms for Korea, Vidio has succeeded in succeeding in many sporting events and has also partnered with tvN Movies which provides a lot of Korean content.
The cool thing is that there are Korean films that are hard to find, but they appear on Vidio.
Q: Why is this year’s KIFF only held in Jakarta and Bandung?
A : This is all based on monitoring that started about 7 months ago, vaccinations that have taken place in Jakarta and Bandung have started and until now Jakarta has reached approximately 70%. So of course herd immunity its better than other cities.
In addition to the ability to vaccinate in Bandung, it turns out that if you look at the conditions around urban areas, if you look closely, Bandung is the safest.
