and other titles have been so successful that you can’t stop talking about the origin of hallyu.

This phenomenon was first named in the late 1990s when the Chinese newspaper The Peoples Daily used the term to refer to the positive reception of Korean culture in countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Hallyu is nothing more than the consolidation of tv dramas, movies, kpop, celebrities or idols, gastronomy, makeup among other aspects that have increased its consumption globally. A wave that has jumped oceans and has touched the farthest corners of the planet, even in those nations where barriers have been placed to what is foreign, as in

North Korea.

K-dramas are different from Hollywood productions, Arab soap operas or even Mexican soap operas, because after the war with Japan and North Korea they have provided an opportunity for Korean society to reconfigure itself before the eyes of the world.

Last but not least, there is also the Korean pop (K-pop) industry, which is intrinsically related to the television industry, since the original soundtracks (OST) are also one of the bases to publicize the productions and gain more viewers. .
