'Korean Wave to Promote Peace in East Asia'

2005/11/22 | Permalink | Source

A scholar says the popularity of Korean pop culture, or the "Korean Wave", in Asia will help promote peace in East Asia over the long term.

Sogang University professor Shin Yoon-hwan on Tuesday said in the forum "Korean Wave and Peace Network in East Asia" in Seoul that the Korean Wave has improved the nation's image with its neighbors despite their hostile past.

The forum was hosted by the Advisory Council for Democratic and Peaceful Unification.

Shin said the change has laid the foundation for building mutual trust and will contribute to regional cooperation and integration.

He also warned against excessive nationalism in that it could fuel anti-Korean sentiment in East Asia.
