The Times Exclusive Hails Korean Culture

2006/10/19 | 124 views | Permalink | Source

The British daily The Times has printed a twelve-page exclusive on Korean culture describing how the country has blossomed culturally after shedding its authoritarian past through democratic reforms.

Noting how South Korean music and cinema has influenced all of Asia and that Korean films have triggered explosive interest in Britain, The Times predicted that Korean pop music would follow suit.

The paper also profiled the singer Rain, who was named one of the most influential people in the world by the Times magazine, noting how he overcame poverty and prejudice to become an international star.

The report also said that Korea's zeal for English education is contributing to bilateral ties and that a Korean cultural institute opening in London this year will serve as a base for promoting Korean culture to Europe and Africa.
