Interview

For us to learn the Korean Pop Culture in a foreigner’s perspective and on how they came to love this kind of culture even though they barely understand the language, we have asked 7 questions for them.

Accounts we used to interview members of OneHallyu.

An introduction of one’s self for the interview

The replies were quite a “symbol” of the community’s eagerness and kindness to answer the questions.

First, we asked them what was their nationality and their age, for us to know how diverse OneHallyu really is. After asking the two personal information, we now asked the following questions:

  1. What got you into Korean Pop music / Korean Drama?
  2. Why do you specifically like Korean Pop music/ Korean Drama?
  3. In your opinion, what differentiates the Korean music/ film industry to the western?
  4. What are the effects of Kpop/Kdrama to you?
  5. Are you proficient in the korean language? If no, what motivates you to still listen/watch korean music/drama?
  6. Did you try listening or engaging to other entertainment industries? (Japan, China, Philippines, Thailand etc.)
  7. What entertainment industry do you like more/best? Your own country or Korean? Why?
  8. What is your age and nationality?

Since we cannot meet them personally because of distance, we decided to ask the questions at the message box of OneHallyu. Here are the most prominent answers that we received from some of the members.

As you can see from the answers of the community, they are diverse and different. Coming from different age groups (mostly around 18-20’s as of this writing) and different nationalities, the spread of Korean Pop music is seen throughout the world. A very big thanks to the rise of the internet and social media that we are able to see the effects of the Hallyu Wave. Having helped creating communities for the Korean music scene and the whole music scene, in general, has thoroughly aided the world to have a safe place for those with common interests.
