New Exhibition At The V&A Museum In London Is Celebrating Korean Culture
The landmark exhibition, called "Hallyu! The Korean Wave", will be the first exhibition of its kind to celebrate the culture of South Korea in this way.
A press release says: “From K-Pop costumes to K-drama props and posters, alongside photography, sculpture, fashion, video, and pop culture ephemera, the exhibition will invite visitors to delve into the phenomenon known as "hallyu"—meaning "Korean Wave." Hallyu rose to prominence in the late 1990s, rippling across Asia before reaching all corners of the world and challenging the currents of global pop culture today.
It continues: “Hallyu! The Korean Wave will explore the makings of the Korean Wave through cinema, drama, music, and fandoms and underline its cultural impact on the beauty and fashion industries. The exhibition will feature around 200 objects across four thematic sections – including some loans never seen in the UK before – alongside pop culture ephemera and digital displays.
Some of the highlights of the exhibition include an immersive re-creation of Parasite’s bathroom set from the Oscar-winning film. There’s also a display of iconic costumes and props seen in K-drama, film, and music — including ones from the hit Netflix series Squid Game and outfits worn by different generations of K-pop idols, from PSY to aespa and ATEEZ.
