Catch the Koreanwave on Star iPad
IN August 2002, a little known, sob-fest love story from South Korea started airing on Malaysian television. Its name was Winter Sonata.
No one had any idea then of the cultural craze that would spark across the country, along with the rest of the region.
Now the Koreanwave, or Hallyu, has taken the world by storm.
Next week, Sunday Star ties up with The Star iPad to celebrate 10 years of the Koreanwave in Malaysia with a Hallyu special.
Watch this space and download a Korean extravaganza pullout featuring Korea’s best from its taekwando martial art, booming tourism, sumptuous delicacies, illustrious movers and shakers to the K-pop culture that has taken the world by storm.
