The so-called Korean wave of popular entertainment, driven by South Korean movies, TV shows, and pop music, has been growing in influence across Asia since the 1980s.
It has now burgeoned into being a global phenomenon fuelled by the internet and social media. But in its heyday Cantopop and Hong Kong cinema in the 1970s and 1980s was what inspired some of the most dedicated fans across Asia. More recently younger generation Hongkongers are likely to have fallen under the spell of Korean boy bands like BTS and girl groups such as Blackpink, while TV watchers have been bingeing on Korean dramas. Since 2019 though, there’s been a revival of enthusiasm for Hong Kong’s home-grown talent, and it all started with a TV reality show.
