In Korea, as well as many other parts of Asia, television was stillwidely unknown. As US and European manufacturers sought to sell TVs inKorea, the government stepped in to help with Korean television production.In order to sell TVs in the country, international companies would have toshare the technology for this new product with Korean manufacturers. Manyagreed to do so, and Samsung was one of the companies that benefited fromthis agreement.

By 1982,Samsung had produced over a million color TVs and 10 million black andwhite units for sale throughout the world.
