Korean Wave – Hallyu 한류

Posted by hying

It all started with our all times favorite drama ‘Winter Sonata’ (겨울 연가) The first and most popular Korean TV drama that was shown on its satellite channel in 2003.

Touching story and beautiful sceneries  are the main reason for making this drama so popular.

한류 = 韩流 (‘Han Liu’ in Chinese) 

What is Hallyu?

Hallyu  refers to the recent surge of popularity of South Korean popular culture in other countres, especially in Asian countries. One of them is Korean TV drama.

One thing that I must really admire is that Korean movies & dramas scriptwriters can really think of many different stories and different way on how the leading male and female actors meet and fell in love with each other. It’s a journey of happiness, tears and hope.

Sometimes the stories may just seen so unrealistic, but don’t we just love watching them!

That’s the power of Hallyu!
