South Korea's cultural industries and cultural policy, music, folklore, popular entertainment, fashion, and marketing.
Since finishing my PhD on the preservation of folksongs in South Korea, I have expanded the scope of my research to include popular culture. I am fascinated by the mechanics of cultural policy and the challenges of studying the dynamics of major cultural phenomena, mainly from a sociological point of view. In broad terms, my research analyses Korea's cultural industries and cultural policy from the early twentieth century to the present.
