Korean Pop Culture to Spread to SoCal

2006/03/08 | 115 views | Permalink | Source

The popularity of Korean pop culture, dubbed the "Korean Wave", is expected to spread to Southern California.

The festival "Power Korea 2006" will open Monday in Los Angeles for a four-day run featuring top Korean celebrities.

The Los Angeles Korean Cultural Center will screen the blockbuster films "Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War" and "Welcome to Dongmakgol".

Meanwhile, South Korea will play next week the second round of the World Baseball Classic in nearby Anaheim. To support the team, ethnic Korean communities in Los Angeles and Orange County have planned a massive cheering campaign.

The festival's "Music Korea" program featuring actor Jang Dong-gun and Yoon's Band will also cheer South Korea in the World Cup soccer finals in Germany.
