‘The Guardian’ have written quite a few articles on the global influence of K-Pop and K-drama series in the past. A few days ago an interesting piece was published on the reception of K-Pop in neighbouring North Korea.

Of course, the access to South Korean media in the North is extremely limited. However, the article states how the very rich and affluent are often the only ones who can (legally) indulge in the foreign media, and even then, it is still a limited selection.

There is also still an awful lot of tension wrapped up in this consumption, and a lot of it is conducted illegally. As well as this, there are significant differences in taste between the South and North, which the article goes into in more detail.

Check out the piece here!
