Korean Drama

Want to learn more about Korean drama?

Korean drama (Korean: 한국드라마) refers to televised dramas, in a miniseries format, produced primarily in the Korean language. Many of these dramas have become popular throughout Asia, and beyond to the US and Europe, and have contributed to the general phenomenon of the Korean wave, known as "Hallyu", and also "Drama Fever" in some countries. Most popular Korean dramas have also become popular in other parts of the world such as Latin America, the Middle East, and elsewhere. Some of the most internationally popular Korean dramas are Winter Sonata, Dae Jang Geum, Full House, Stairway to Heaven, My Girl, Love Story in Harvard, Shining Inheritance, Autumn in My Heart, Yi San, Boys Over Flowers You're Beautiful and IRIS. (Adapted from Wikipedia)

The Korean drama Full House is one of the more well-known dramas. It featured the singer/actor "Rain" (Bi) as the male lead character.

Japanese cross-over - The drama "Hotelier" featured the actor Bae Yong Joon who is also popular in Japan. The recent 2009/2010 Iris is also being shown in Japan, as it was partially filmed there http://www.japanprobe...
