Info Session: Korea - Pop Culture in Seoul

Date: Thursday, November 7
Time: 3:00-3:50pm
Location: KMC 605

How has this country of slightly over 50 million people come to dominate the regional Popular Culture market?

What can we learn about the global circulation of popular culture through the Korean experience?
