This book aims to provide a venue for redefining popular culture and its true power – beyond soft power – including discussion on how the pandemic and the use of online platforms have coincidently or effectively influenced recent phenomena surrounding Korean popular culture. In this, this edited volume deals with the wide scope of Korean popular culture based on the interdisciplinary approach, along with theoretical accounts.
At the book talk, you will be able to hear from all of the seven contributing authors.
