韓國大眾文化講座 | Korean Popular Culture Talk
Everyone is embracing the Korean Wave, but can you imagine that Hong Kong 40 years ago was one of the leaders of Asian pop culture? Hong Kong pop culture in 1980s-1990s was very popular in South Korea, like "Korean Wave", it can be called "Kong-Wave". Many Hong Kong stars were popular among Korean fans. In the past, Koreans embraced the "Kong-Wave", and now HongKongers embrace the "Korean Wave". In contrast, what can we learn from it to make Hong Kong culture revive again?
