Having heard that my sister Natalie is taking up Korean Lessons in her Foreign Language Class arise my deep enthusiasm and curiosity on what Korean stuff is all about.
Korean Wave, a.k.a. Hallyu or Hanryu, was first introduced in the late 1990's in China and Hong Kong;referring to the popularity of Korean Culture that eventually sweep throughout other Asian countries like Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan, Indonesia and Philippines;until it paved the way to be known into other Foreign countries like Middle East, South America and the U.S. According to statistic, it has been said that more than 13 million Asians are residing in the United States and made a widely range of a possible market. It attracts other ethnic groups or people who are interested in Korean or Asian culture and entertainment. Here in the Philippines, a lot of Filipinos had been part of the growing number of viewers of these Korean Dramas or Koreanovelas that has been showed even in the prime time and because not all can speak and understand Korean Language the whole drama has been tagalized (Korean dialogues dubbed into Filipino so that the audiences can easily understand). Catchy storylines, strong characters turn into life that makes Korean films and dramas a bit more exciting as a whole.
I made this lens to have a deeper look at their fascinating culture.

What is Korean Wave?
Korean wave or Korea fever refers to the surge of popularity of South Korean culture around the world since the 21st century, especially among the Generation Y. While popular throughout the Asian continent, its influence is strongest in East Asia, especially dominant in China, Japan and Southeast Asia, spreading to India, the Middle East, Central Asia, Israel, Turkey and Russia.
The Korean wave is rapidly expanding beyond Asia and has a substantial presence in Central and South America, particularly in Mexico and Argentina, and is increasingly becoming popular in the United States.It is also gaining momentum in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, led by Hungary and Norway. It is gathering positive interest in North Africa, attracting a sizable niche audience in Egypt. Currently, the Korean wave is starting to hit the shores of the UK and Australia.
South Korea is one of the world's top ten cultural exporters and the Korean wave began with the export of Korean TV dramas such as Autumn Fairy Tale, Winter Sonata and Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the Palace) across East and Southeast Asia; the growing success of Korean dramas was soon matched by Korean movies, popular music, food and language. The term has now become an acronym referring to South Korea's growing economic power and the rise of global multinationals such as Samsung, LG and Hyundai-Kia.
It is also referred to as "Hallyu" from the Korean pronunciation. The term was coined in China in mid-1999 by Beijing journalists surprised by the fast growing popularity of South Koreans and South Korean goods in China. (read more Wikipedia)

Colors: black (seaweed) & white (rice), red (radish), green (cucumber or spinach), brown (meat or tuna), and yellow (egg or cheese, pickled radish called "danmooji")
INGREDIENTS: Dried seaweed- 4 sheets
*Rice 3 cups
*Vinegar 4 Tbs
*Water 3 Tbs
*Sugar 2 Tbs
*Salt 2 Tbs
*Cucumber 1/2 of one
*Carrots 200 g
"Danmooji" (Pickled radish - yellow in color) 100 g
