earning about its past and present in this comprehensive and fascinating guide.

In recent years, Korean popular culture has taken the form of a tidal wave sweeping over the West. Whether it's music, film, drama series, fashion, or cuisine, South Korea is establishing itself as a key player on the world stage. And the Korean Wave (Hallyu) shows no sign of stopping. Even before Squid Game and the award-winnning film Parasite, K-pop had become a $5 billion industry and Korean food had become the exciting new regional cuisine in restaurants and bars.

K Culture will reveal all aspects of South Korea's way of life, both historically and in its new found fame. Including sections on K-pop bands, cinema, drama, art, comics, food, fashion, and night-life, with features within each section on the best films, shows, stars, artists etc.--this book offers different gateways into contemporary South Korea and what drives it.

Also highlighted is the global influence, with a focus on eight cities from around the world (including London, Paris, Berlin, Toronto, New York, and L.A.) that have embraced this dynamic culture. This book is a stunning, informative, and fun handbook to the Korean Wave.
