The Republic Of Korea is a small country on the far eastern edge of Asia. Although it ranks 109th in the world in terms of land area, the country is a center of economic activity, culture, and arts. Korea was colonized by Japan in the early 20th century and later had to endure the Korean War (1950-53), but it has achieved amazing economic growth in a short period, dubbed "the Miracle on the Han River."Today, Korea is an industrial nation standing tall on the world stage. Its semiconductor, automobile, shipbuilding, steel making, and IT industries are on the leading edge in global markets. It hosted the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the 2002 Korea-Japan FIFA World Cup. More recently, Korean dramas, movies, and music are attracting many audiences in Asian countries and beyond, creating what is being called the "Korean Wave." Korea's new standing in the international community was highlighted in 2010 with the nation becoming the first Asian country to chair the G20 and host the G20 Seoul Summit.

The likely future of male cosmetics usage? Given the demands of modern women of South Korea, men have responded accordingly by embracing cosmetics. The main driving force of the Flower boy phenomenon is the Korean Wave. Its ubiquity in South Korea and rise in Asia signals the possible perpetuation of normalcy of male cosmetics usage. In view of the popularity of the Korean Wave, it is unlikely that the Flower boy trend will die down any time soon.
*2014 AIKS CONFERENCE ON KOREAN STUDIES “The Hallyu Mosaic in the Philippines: Framing Perceptions and Praxis” June 21, 2014 / Saturday / 8:30AM-6:00PM Organized by AIKS in partnership with the Ateneo Department of Communication and the World Association for Hallyu Studies (WAHS) Rationale Hallyu or the Korean Wave is “a general term that describes the boom in interest in South Korean pop culture and includes the purchasing and viewing of South Korean cultural products, as well as travelling to South Korea”[1]. The Philippines has been a recipient of the spread of Korean popular culture in Southeast Asia since early 2000s visibly through the showing of Korean dramas over local T.V. networks. Starting with the drama “Bright Girl”, the popularity of the so-called Koreanovelas or Korean telenovelas – a combination of the terms ‘television’ and Spanish word for novels, ‘novela’, first used to describe the popularity of Mexican dramas – began to soar in mid-2000s and whose visibility re ...

2NE1 represented K-pop idol stars at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival in Cannes, France.   Along with Cheil Worldwide South-East Asia, 2NE1 served as public speakers and talked about how the digital wave is helping in spreading K-Pop and the Korean Wave.   2NE1 became MTV Iggy’s Best New Band in the World in December 2011, and this year it was chosen as the most popular K-Pop star among K-Pop fans in France. Such achievements came without any local promotions, and this was what brought them to Cannes.   When asked whether 2NE1 feels the global popularity as a top K-Pop star, member CL said, “We were surprised at how fans from all over the world would made cover videos on YouTube of our songs. I think digital mediums such as YouTube brought down the boundaries in our music.”   About the question; how 2NE1 became so successful, she said, “I believe fans love us because our Korean passion, energy and our love toward music are contained in 2NE1’s music videos, performances and ...

From our friends at The Korea Society (thanks Yuni Yoonjung Cho!) The Korea Society presents Panel Discussion: ‘All About K-Pop’ Korean entertainment is no longer just consumed by Koreans in the Korea peninsula. Korean pop culture is gaining prominence in other Asian countries and other parts of the world. Korean movie stars and singers are becoming their heartthrobs and idols as well. Psy’s ‘Gentleman’ generated nearly four hundred million views on Youtube and ranked 5th on the Billboard charts, ‘Girls Generation’ performed in Madison Square Garden and ‘2NE1’ was voted as the Best New Band in the world by MTV Iggy in 2011. ‘Hallyu’ aka the Korean Wave refers to the syndrome of rising popularity of Korean entertainment. Hallyu seems to have arrived in USA now. Could it be temporal or is it the beginning of an invasion? The Korea Society examines and analyzes the current phenomenon of the Kpop boom nationwide and the prospects of Hallyu’s future with distinguished guest speakers. .. ...

FNC Ent. CEO Han Seongho: Carving out niche with pop rock bands The four lanky, good-looking guys of the rock band CNBLUE are everywhere these days, on music charts, shows and in TV dramas. Their most recent single “I’m Sorry” topped the charts after its release Jan. 14. In addition, bassist Lee Jung-shin, 21, is starring in a popular network drama; while guitarist Lee Jong-hyun, 22, and drummer Kang Min-hyuk, 21, have recently wrapped up popular television dramas of their own. Front man Jung Yong-hwa, 23, in the meantime, wrote much of the music for the group’ s recent album “Re: Blue.” But it is when they are performing live together that the four assume a new identity. Happier and more confident to do their own stuff four years after their debut, the members exude a raw edge and sexiness. It is a quality that carves out a niche for them in the K-pop landscape dominated by cute sexy girl groups and androgynous boy-groups featuring danceable electro pop music. The ability to jump to a new dim ...

  With a recent wave of high-quality dramas, variety shows, and general programming, Korean broadcast station SBS is celebrating their recent successes compared with their competition.   According to AGB Nielsen Korea, SBS’s weekly dramas are putting up a strong showing versus their often more-hyped competitors. Both of their weekday dramas have pushed out their competition to take the spot in the living room, with the Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Queen of Ambition‘ (19.7%) triumphing over MBC‘s ‘The Horse Healer‘ (18.1%) and KBS‘s ‘Advertisement Genius Lee Tae Baek‘ (3.9%).   Perhaps most surprisingly of all, the station’s Wednesday-Thursday drama, ‘Wind Blows in Winter‘, has pushed aside the incredibly hyped ‘Iris 2‘ and ‘7th Grade Civil Servant‘ to take first place with recent ratings of 13.4%, versus 10.8% for ‘Iris 2′ and 12.5% for ’7th Grade Civil Servant’.   The news is even better on the variety front, where SBS is continuing their strong showing.

"Even in countries where the U.S. and its entertainment exports are generally popular, many still voice reservations about the reach of American culture," writes Richard Wike on GPS. "Japan was the only nation among the 20 polled where a majority (58 percent) said it is good that American customs and ideas are spreading to their country. In contrast, less than a third in Britain, France, Spain, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Greece described the spread of U.S. ideas and customs as a good thing." "The reality is that resistance to American culture often goes hand in hand with a strong attraction to it. French sheep farmer José Bové may have become a hero to the anti-globalization movement by famously helping ransack a McDonald’s in 1999, but it hasn’t stopped the proliferation of golden arches in Europe or elsewhere."

Jumong (Korean: 주몽, Hanja: 朱蒙) is a historical drama which aired on South Korea's MBC television network as a 45th Anniversary Special Drama. Originally set to be 60 episodes long, MBC decided to extend it to 81 due to its popularity. It portrays the life of Jumong Taewang, (founder of the kingdom of Goguryeo). Few details have been found in the actual historical records on Jumong, so many artistic details have been thought up. The fantastic elements surrounding the original legend of Jumong have been replaced with events more grounded in reality, such as that concerning his birth. It is also considered a major part of the "Korean wave" ("Hallyu"), with viewer ratings in Iran reaching more than 80 percent.

K-pop (an abbreviation of Korean pop)[1] (Korean: 가요 kayo)[1] is a musical genre and subculture originating in South Korea which comprises a wide spectrum of musical and visual elements. Although in a bigger scope K-pop may include any genre of South Korean popular music, outside of the country the term is more commonly used for songs sung by systematically trained K-Pop idols signed with management agencies such as SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment.[2] In 1992, dance and rap music was brought into the genre by Seo Taiji & Boys, whose experimentation with a different variety of musical sounds had ushered in the beginning of modern K-pop.[2] Since the mid-2000s, the Korean Wave has driven a visible spread of K-pop across the Pacific Rim, before subsequently reaching out to the Americas, Eurasia, and North Africa. According to the news agency Reuters, the success of PSY's single "Gangnam Style" has led to other K-pop artists positioning themselves for a similar break ...

Impact Main articles: Korean Wave and List of awards and nominations received by Girls' Generation Following their debut in 2007, Girls' Generation has become a prominent figure in both South Korean culture and music, with music critics noting the group as being a representative figure of South Korean culture.[204] The group is credited as playing a major role in the Hallyu Movement,[205] and have been compared to fellow K-Pop singer Seo Taiji due to their contributions to Korean culture.[206] Their immense popularity has lead the group to earn the titles "The Nation's Singers" (Korean: 국민가수) and "The Nation's Girl Group"[8] Following the disbandment of the original Korean idol girl groups S.E.S. and Fin.K.L in 2002, the Korean music industry experienced an influx of male idol groups such as TVXQ! and Super Junior, however upon the group's debut with songs such as "Into the New World" and "Kissing You", they were credited for shifting focus back to female groups.[207] In 2011, the group was chosen ...
News (UK & Ireland): "What is K-pop?" When even the President of the United States is re-enacting your dance moves, you've made it big, and that is exactly what happened to PSY this summer when ‘Gangnam Style’ became a global phenomenon. This year the world stood up and took notice of the South Korean artist and the style of music he represented, and opened people's eyes to K-pop. What is K-pop? K-pop, or Korean Pop, is a fusion of dance, electronica, electropop, hip-hop and R&B that originated in South Korea but has spread across Asia (and now the rest of the world). Exponents of the genre have attracted a fanatical following in recent years, though western audiences could be forgiven for not being entirely au fait with K-pop until this year. The movement has largely been driven by the internet with every wannabe artist in the world having a platform to showcase their abilities. Though instant stardom is not guaranteed, the internet has played a major role in the spread of the Korean Wave (which desc ...
Say hello to the class that was made with me in mind: Gender, Global Pop Culture & the Politcs of Gangnam Style COURSE DESCRIPTION: "Recently, South Korean rapper Psy’s viral hit, “Oppa Gangnam Style,” set a Guinness Book world record for “Most Liked Youtube Video” and has had everyone from congressmen to Britney Spears doing the horsey dance. While discourses on global popular culture tend to center U.S. cultural hegemony, this class asks how and why major political and economic shifts have occurred to make the above possible. Yet, global popular culture is more than mere entertainment. By linking popular culture to the industries that produce them as well as the industries they support, this class connects films, pop songs, and television serials to nation-building and branding projects, diasporic identity formation, and transnational capital and labor.
