ABSTRACT

An important debate on the role of the creative industry as a core factor for urban economic development is emerging very recently. The creative industries are commonly active across the margins of the arts and economic activities. The purpose of this study is to undertake a preliminary analysis to understand the location and growth pattern of the creative industry during the period of 1995~2004 in Seoul. To analyze the spatial pattern of the creative industry of Seoul, several scholarly definition and classification are reviewed and applied to Korean Standard Classification of Industries at 5-digit level. In this study, location quotient and Moran'I Index are applied for analyzing of spatial distributional characteristics of creative industries by sub-sectors and value chain. The results suggest that the activities of the creative industry have the tendency of clustering in specific areas of Seoul, and employment growth and distributional characteristics according to value chain in creative industries show very different patterns in Seoul. This study has taken a first step in developing new strategic policy implications for the creative industry in Seoul, but still needs further study to construct the classification of the creative industry in Korea and analyze the creative industries production system in detail.
