June 13, If you have been in the K-Pop international community for a while, you will know that it is one of the huge debate. Views are very divided on the subject. Luda from Poland explained that her dream is to be a K-Pop idol but that she has a lot of thoughts about it. She explained that in Korea she feels that she will not be accepted because she is not Asian.
As the U. Korean wave hallyu products like K-pop and K-dramas became enormously popular in China earlier this decade, driven by relatively open international exchange and the growth of a sizable urban middle class with disposable income. The ban has since eased a little, but even after the thaw, no major Korean group has been invited to perform in the country. But if Seoul pisses off Beijing again—say, if Korean companies stop selling memory chips to Huawei—a complete ban on hallyu will be harder this time around.
How did South Korea, a country which at one point heavily censored music, suddenly become an extraordinary pop culture exporter? The South Korean government plays a vital role in exporting this soft power. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism has continuously sponsored promotional initiatives to promote Korean culture since the late s. Together with the embassies and consulates, K-pop stars are invited to perform at concerts overseas. The rapid dissemination of K-pop videos onto YouTube engages fans internationally, thus, helping with the spread of Korean Wave.
