Hawaii Strong on Korean Content!

2011/02/02 | 879 views | Permalink | Source

A "KDRAMA" tab is one of 12 under the category of Features on the website of Hawaii newspaper, Star Advertiser. http://www.staradvertiser.com/features/kdrama/

Alongside news on Korean content are weekly synopses of Korean television dramas currently airing on KBFD, the Honolulu TV station which bills itself as the "pioneer in Asian programming".  In fact, if you go to the KBFD top page - http://www.kbfd.com/eng/ – you'll see current primetime dramas being aired including "Smile, Mom", "Daemul - Big Thing" and "Secret Garden".

And, a recent report in the San Francisco Chronicle spoke about a weekly English-language TV show on Korean culture which will debut on KBFD in March. The story states: "The new series will include 'celebrity interviews and features on food, entertainment, shopping and tour attractions', according to KBFD general manager Jeff Chung". Chung, by the way, is the author of the KDRAMA section in the Advertiser.

The Chronicle also points to the upcoming Honolulu Festival – Pacific Harmony, set for March 11-13. Through educational programs and activities sponsored by the Honolulu Festival Foundation, the event continues to share the rich and vibrant blend of Asia, Pacific and Hawaiian cultures with the rest of the world. There will be free arts and dance performances by Korean groups, as well as those of many other Asian and Pacific cultures. Venues include the Hawai'i Convention Center, Ala Moana Shopping Center, Waikiki Beach Walk and Waikiki Shopping Plaza. http://www.honolulufestival.com
