Hallyu, the Korean Wave, has swept the world, bringing South Korean culture to all parts of the globe. Popular Korean music (K-pop) and dramas (K-dramas) are the favorites of millions of people, who follow the groups, musicians, stars, movies and television shows religiously. For adopted individuals and adoptive parents, Hallyu provides a window into Korean culture, society and language that can be as educational as a trip to Korea. South Korea is using the Korean wave to promote its traditional culture within Korea and abroad, too, as this recent Korea Herald article shows.
