KOFICE (Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange) recently invited me to contribute to their December 2017 issue of their webzine, "Hallyu Story", that features content relevant to the long reach of the Hallyu wave. It was my honor to look into Korean drama and the international audience, of which I am an enthusiastic part. Here's a sample of the article:
Korean drama claims a decent slice of the international entertainment pie thanks to the visible efforts of the Korean government, the creators, and the fans behind the Korean wave (Hallyu/한류, which literally means "the flow of Korea"), the powerful movement that shares South Korean entertainment and culture beyond its borders. In the 1990s, the Korean wave began in earnest, but it wasn't until 2011 that I discovered it through the Korean drama "You're Beautiful". From that starting point, I, like most international fans, became immersed not only in Korean drama, but in many things Korean: K-pop, Korean food, Korean skin care, the Korean language, and Korean culture. Eventually, because of my background as an academic and a professional cellist, I began to apply my training to the analysis of Korean drama and K-pop, which eventually led me to HanCinema. Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Lisa Espinosa and I am the managing editor of HanCinema, The Korean Movie & Drama Database.
