The Hallyu wave has been popular since the dawn of the 1990’s and up until now it still rises above other with the reasoning that the concepts of the Hallyu wave is diverse and different.

The rise of the followers of those who joined the Hallyu wave and the Korean entertainment industry as a whole was in part because of the rise of globalization and commercialization. The effects of this can be seen in the lives of the fans or its followers because of they have been influenced by the Asian culture.
