Abstract

The Korean Wave is neither a fortuitous incident nor a result of the governmental master-plan, but a complex concoction of actors of various types and strata. This chapter first outlines the development of the Korean Wave in the domain of TV dramas and contextualizes its evolutionary process by examining both macro and micro factors. It then further extrapolates the trajectory of the Korean Wave within the paradigm of convergence and concludes with an emphasis on the need for reconceptualising the cultural industries in this era of digital ubiquity, as epitomised in the case of the Korean Wave.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
