Title

Reading the ‘Korean Wave’ as a Sign of Global Shift

Description

This article uses discourse analysis of newspaper and magazine articles during 2001 as well as fieldwork to reveal how the Korean Wave allowed Koreans to develop a different perspective on globalization. It identifies three perspectives that emerged from analysis: a cultural nationalist perspective, which emphasized pride in Korean culture, an industrialist and neoliberal position, which emphasized culture as an industry and focused on the sale of Korean products, and a postcolonial perspective, which emphasized the Korean wave as only the product of capitalism. The Korean wave has continued to grow, sparking a second Korean wave that generated less ideological and more information-based discourse.
