Korean culture, warmly welcome in China
Conversely, nowadays, Korean popular culture has been added its appeal to Chinese young generation. Young people love Korean TV drama series and K-pop music. Stars have a large number of fans in mainland China.
“Before I reach Guangzhou, I have no idea how much Chinese and foreign people love Korean food. I think the reason why foreign people love Korean food is Korean drama and K-POP. Because of drama and music, people get interested in Korean culture so naturally they get interested in Korean food.”
Furthermore, on the differences between Korean TV drama and Chinese TV series, Kim has his own thoughts.
“I have watched few scenes of Chinese drama from my friend’s mobile phone. I think Chinese drama treats too much about old stories such as monkey king and fighting against Japan. But Korean drama is different, we usually treat love story in the present and we put some interesting points such as the main actor can read people’s mind or he or she came from other stars.”
