In recent years, the Korean Wave has yet again began to strike fans all around the world. This crave for everything Korean is getting to the point where things are spinning out of control. I've been noticing that a lot of Korean stars have been in the news lately, especially stars who I still love and fangirl over. I wonder why these numerous reports are flooding the media. Could it be the "K-pop curse?"
Why do I love SM Entertainment - is it the Korean Wave?
The "Korean Wave" or "Hallyu" as known in South Korea, has stretched across the globe in recent years. This term "refers to the popularity of Korean media culture across East and Southeast Asia." Fans everyone are craving more and more of Korean entertainment and what it has to offer. I don't even know why I love Korean stuff so much. I think it's because of the Korean Wave and influence of my surroundings. I feel drawn to the whole Korean society and want to learn more. I love watching dramas when I have free time and I like to know about the latest news in the Korean industry. Whether it be a new song that debuted, or a new drama that is airing, I tend to want to find out more about what is happening there. It's weird because I guess I can call myself a "Korean-a-phile."
