korean youth culture

This video is self-directed, self-recorded, self-produced. I experienced Korean youth culture when I attended the International Summer Semester organized by Sungkyunkwan University in June – July 2017.
This video is shooted in Hongdae street, Sulbing Dessert House Hongdae, Internet Cafe dan Karaoke room near Hyehwa Station, and of course YG Entertainment building near Hongdae and BlackPink pop up store in Hongdae. Experiencing Korean Youth Culture through K-Pop, dessert house, drinking culture, internet café or PC room and karaoke room.
Thanks to Haree Kim, Yunyoung Na, Tom Baillods, and Heejeong Lee.

Throughout the late 1960s, a form of youth culture influenced by the West began to take shape in South Korea. It was not until 1970, however, that a discourse on youth culture (ch’ŏngnyŏn munhwa) began to develop in the Korean-language press. These media outlets also tended to portray developments in the US and Europe in a sensationalist manner, highlighting “free sex,” nudity, rebellion, and drug use, particularly by hippies. By 1969, bands playing psychedelic and soul music became popular in Korea, while in early 1970 the “new trend” of long hair on men gained coverage. The beach and vacationing also became an integral part of this culture, reflected in 1970’s hit song by the Key Boys, “Go to the beach.” Weekly magazines like Sunday Seoul reported on risqué avant-garde art and revealing fashion shows as well, and by the summer of 1970 young people were said to be caught up in the go-go dancing craze, while some students were reported to be smoking marijuana. These trends culminated in a crackdown on all of these aspects of youth culture at the end of August 1970, one which focused mostly on men with long hair but also targeted avant-garde art.

Such long hair crackdowns would become a common occurrence throughout the 1970s and intensified after the authoritarian Yusin system was established in 1972. In 1975 Park Chung-hee used the defeat of South Vietnam as an excuse to ban all dissent and exercise total control over students on campuses. This was accompanied by censorship of rock and folk music and the sudden arrests of hundreds of young people, particularly musicians, for smoking marijuana. The reason the latter crackdown was so effective – leading to dozens of musicians being banned from performing for life – was that few young people realized marijuana was illegal. Its criminalization dated back to the summer of 1970, when marijuana use among Korean students was exaggerated to justify prohibition and obscure the fact this was being done at the behest of US military authorities. After years of indifference to drug use by US soldiers, the ROK’s sudden cooperation was linked to the planned withdrawal of 20,000 US troops under the Nixon Doctrine. The resulting enforcement of the new law near US bases and nowhere else contributed to ignorance of the law and facilitated the spread of marijuana use, which inadvertently gave the authorities the means to suppress Westernized youth culture while promoting wholesome music and patriotic spirit.

This lecture will focus on the years 1969 and 1970 and make extensive use of photos from contemporary weekly magazines to explore the incipient youth culture which was suppressed by South Korea’s authoritarian government.

Matt VanVolkenburg first arrived in Korea in 2001 and began the blog Gusts of Popular Feeling in 2005. His interest in modern Korean history encompasses film, music, urban redevelopment, reactions to Western culture, and media depictions of foreigners. He contributed research to a case brought before the UN Committee on the Eradication of Racial Discrimination which ultimately ended HIV testing of foreign English teachers. He recently received an M.A. in Korean Studies from the University of Washington where he focused on the topic of this lecture.

Mickela explores Gwangjang Market in Seoul, South Korea – she also experiences a tea ceremony at the Jogyesa Temple, makes kimchi with Master Kim at the Kimchi Theme Park, and ends with a little virtual dance party at the Samsung D’Light store!

For some couples, doing “couply” things comes naturally, whether that’s sharing a whole dictionary of inside jokes, always splitting entrees, or acknowledging anniversaries with an elaborate tradition. But, those lovebirds have nothing on the twosomes in South Korea who’ve created a micro industry around celebrating relationships.

There are couple cafes, couple movie theaters, couple holidays, couple phone apps, and — of course — couple clothes. In a community where most young adults live at home until they’re ready to get married, and public displays of affection are deeply discouraged, Korean couples have embraced this kind of matchy-matchy dressing as a non-verbal way to communicate that, yes, they’re on the same team.

For the second episode of Style Out There, Asha Leo lands in Seoul, South Korea to get an idea of what compels young pairs to carefully coordinate their outfits, and try out the trend for herself.

Description: In Jeju Island, a community of women, some aged in their 80s, goes diving to gather shellfish for a living. The Jeju haenyeo (female divers) harvest up to seven hours a day, 90 days of the year holding their breath for every 10m dive. Beforehand, prayers are said for safety and an abundant catch. Transmission occurs in families, fishery cooperatives and The Haenyeo School. The traditional practice advances women’s status in the community, represents the island’s identity and promotes sustainability.

The Battle Of The Year has come a long way. Who would have thought that BOTY would go from starting out in 1990 in a local youth culture centre with 500 hard-core fans to an arena packed with more than 12,000 roaring spectators and b-boy crews from all over the world?

BOTY has grown massively – and we have slowly realised our vision of developing the spirit of breakdance and creating an international event platform that allows B-Boys and B-Girls from all different countries to express their creativity in front of an ever-growing audience.

BOTY 2014 was huge – and our aim is to keep it growing, evolving and pushing it to become the best Battle Of The Year we can possibly achieve, to once again prove that the event has earned its position as a pinnacle of the breaking and b-boying scene. Let’s celebrate a quarter-century of BOTY history together! Keep on rockin’ the next 25 years!

Description of Seoul:

Seoul (서울) is the capital of South Korea. With more than 11 million residents in the city limits and a whopping 24+ million people in the greater Seoul area (a.k.a. Seoul National Capital Area). Seoul is one of the world’s largest metropolitan cities and one of East Asia’s financial and cultural epicenters. A fascinating blend of ancient traditions and cutting-edge digital technology, home to endless street food vendors and vast nightlife districts, an extraordinarily high-pressure educational system and serene Buddhist temples, a trend-setting youth culture and often crushing conformism, extraordinary architecture and endless monotonous rows of grey apartment buildings, Seoul is a city filled with stark contrasts.

Five Cool Facts About Seoul:

1. Seoul is home to a number of historic sites and monuments. In addition, the Seoul National Capital Area has four UNESCO World Heritage Sites. They are the Changdeokgung Palace Complex, the Hwaseong Fortress, the Jongmyo Shrine and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty.

2. The number “4″ is considered extremely unlucky, to the point where most buildings in Seoul do not have a 4th floor.

3. All South Korean roofs are curved at the ends giving the appearance of a smile.

4. South Korean men love makeup, spending close to US$900 million a year, or a quarter of the world’s men’s cosmetics. Up to 20% of the male Korean population is reported to use makeup regularly.

5. In Korea, babies are considered one year old at birth.

A romantic trip to South Korea to experience the fiery colours of autumn in the city. We also went for food hunt to try out the trending Korean cuisines.

Korean cuisine is largely based on rice, vegetables, and meats. Traditional Korean meals are noted for the number of side dishes (banchan) that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice. Kimchi is almost always served at every meal. Commonly used ingredients include sesame oil, doenjang (fermented bean paste), soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and gochujang (fermented red chili paste). (Quote from Wikipedia)

Items you cannot find in South Korea.

Description:

Given that South Korea is the 14th-largest economy in the world and Seoul is the fifth wealthiest city in the world, you’d think that there’d be nothing you couldn’t buy in that thriving economy. But actually, there are all sorts of surprising items that are hard to come by, from Western streetwear brands and foods to standard hygiene products. Our video shows you 20 things you cannot buy in South Korea.

In South Korea there’s a counterfeit culture of fake designer streetwear that makes it very hard to buy genuine articles. Top brands like Vetements and Supreme are copied and the youth culture is so keen on following trends that they buy the knock-offs. This creates a Catch-22 situation, as the big brands then won’t sell their goods in such a culture of fakes.

It’s also Western food that is hard to come by in South Korea. If you’re looking for Sour Patch Kids, Beef Jerky, Kraft Dinner or Cheez-it Crackers, you’ll be disappointed. Popular treats like Pop-Tarts and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are available if you know where to look, but they’re so restricted to specialty aisles and they’re so expensive that you won’t be buying them easily.

Then there’s the issue of typical hygiene products. You’ll find it hard to buy your favorite feminine hygiene products or toothpaste in South Korea. As for deodorant, you’ll be amazed to learn that South Koreans rarely wear the stuff. And their bath towels aren’t the huge size that Westerners are used to, either.

Watch our video to discover 20 things you cannot buy in South Korea, and tell us what you’d miss most!

The Sixth Republic began in 1987 and remains the current republic of South Korea. It started with the election of Roh Tae-woo as president for the 13th presidential term in the first direct presidential election in 16 years. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0871133571/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0871133571&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=06bfdeb595d20af75bbc9060ccd26205

Although Roh was from a military background and one of the leaders of Chun’s coup d’etat, the inability of the opposition leaders Kim Dae Jung and Kim Young Sam to agree on a unified candidacy led to his being elected.

Roh was officially inaugurated in February 1988. The government set out to eliminate past vestiges of authoritarian rule, by revising laws and decrees to fit democratic provisions. Freedom of press was expanded, university autonomy recognised, and restrictions on overseas travels were lifted. However, the growth of the economy had slowed down compared to the 80s, with strong labor unions and higher wages reducing the competitiveness of Korean products on the international market, resulting in stagnant exports, while commodity prices kept on rising.

Shortly after Roh’s inauguration, the Seoul Olympics took place, raising South Korea’s international recognition and also greatly influencing foreign policy. Roh’s government announced the official unification plan, Nordpolitik, established diplomatic ties with the Soviet Union, China, and countries in East Europe.

An historic event was held in 1990 when North Korea accepted the proposal for exchange between the two Koreas, resulting in high-level talks, cultural and sports exchange. In 1991, a joint communiqué on denuclearization agreed upon, and the two Koreas simultaneously became members of the UN.

When Roh’s tenure was over, Kim Young-sam was elected president in the 1992 elections. He was the country’s first civilian president in 30 years and he promised to build a “New Korea”. The government set out to correct the mistakes of the previous administrations. Local government elections were held in 1995, and parliamentary elections in 1996. Adhering to popular demand, former presidents Chun and Roh were both indicted on charges linked to bribery, illegal funds, and in the case of Chun, responsibility for the incident in Gwangju. They were tried and sentenced to prison in December, 1996.

Relations with the North improved and a summit meeting was planned, but was postponed indefinitely with the death of Kim Il Sung. Tensions varied between the two Koreas thereafter, with cycle of small military skirmishes and apologies. The government also carried out substantial financial and economical reforms, joined the OECD in 1996, but met crisis with political and financial scandals. The country also faced various catastrophes at the time; train collision and ship sinking in 1993, Seoul’s Seongsu Bridge and Sampoong Department Store collapsing in 1994. These incidents, which claimed many lives, were a blow to the civilian government.

In 1997, the nation suffered a severe financial crisis and the government had to approach the International Monetary Fund for relief funds. This was the limit to what the nation could bear and led to the opposition leader Kim Dae-jung winning the presidency in the same year.

Kim Dae-jung was officially inaugurated in February, 1998. South Korea had maintained its commitment to democratize its political processes and this was the first transfer of the government between parties by peaceful means. Kim’s government faced the daunting task of overcoming the economic crisis, but with the joint efforts of the government’s aggressive pursuit of foreign investment, industry’s cooperation and the citizen’s gold-collecting campaign, the country was able to come out of the crisis in a relatively short period of time.

Industrial reconstruction of the big conglomerate chaebols were pursued, a national pension system was established in 1998, educational reforms were carried out, government support for the IT field was increased, and notable cultural properties were registered as UNESCO Cultural Heritage sites. The 2002 FIFA World Cup, co-hosted with Japan, brought upon a new culture where millions of supporters gather to cheer in public places.

In diplomacy, Kim Dae-jung pursued the “Sunshine Policy”, a series of efforts to reconcile with North Korea. This culminated in reunions of the separated families of the Korean War, and the summit talk with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. For these efforts, Kim Dae-jung was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2000.

With an interesting blend of traditional and modern attractions, South Korea become a great tourist destination. Korea is rich in culture, history, technology, and food. Seoul is the principal tourist destination for visitors. The other popular tourist destinations outside of Seoul include Seorak-san national park, the historic city of Gyeongju and semi-tropical Jeju Island.

Here are best South Korea tourist attractions you must visit:

1. Jeju Island 1:03

The island’s mixture of volcanic rock, frequent rains, and temperate climate, make it very similar to the Hawaiian Islands in the U.S. The island offers visitors a wide range of activities: hiking on Halla-san (South Korea’s highest peak), catching sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, viewing majestic waterfalls and lava tubes, Jeju Loveland, riding horses, or just lying around on the sandy beaches. There are also a lot of museums that can be found in the area like the Folklore and Natural History Museum, Jeju Independence Museum, Jeju Education Museum, Jeju Teddy Bear Museum and a lot more. You can also give in to your interest with nature by going at various parks and caves that can be found in the place.

2. Seoul 2:17

Seoul is also home to endless street food vendors and vast nightlife districts, an extraordinarily high-pressure educational system and serene Buddhist temples, a dynamic trend-setting youth culture and often crushing conformism, extraordinary architecture. Major modern landmarks in Seoul include the Korea Finance Building, N Seoul Tower, the World Trade Center and the seven-skyscraper residence Tower Palace.

3. Haeundae beach – Busan 4:44

During wintertime, it is a beautiful place to go for a walk, with packs of seagulls overhead. The beach is busy year round with several kinds of beach festivals and visitors from in and out from the country. Dongbaekseom (Dongbaek Island), located at the south end of the beach, offers a view of the sea by car and its coastline is famous for fishing. Haeundae beach is one of the most popular spots in Busan to view the first sunrise of the year on January 1, with around a thousand gathering before dawn.

4. Seoraksan National Park 5:45

Seoraksan is the highest mountain in the Taebaek mountain range in the Gangwon Province in eastern South Korea. The national park attracts many national and international tourists all year round, but the main season for Seoraksan national park is autumn. The autumn colours in the area are considered amongst the most beautiful in Korea. The red and yellow forest is interrupted by rocks and small mountain streams flow amidst this. The park contains several famous temples, including Baekdam-sa. The inner part of the Taebaek Mountain Range is named Inner Seorak. The other major areas are Outer Seorak and South Seorak. All three areas are divided by Daecheong-bong, the main peak of Seorak-san.

5. Gyeongju 6:36

Gyeongju is a small city north of Ulsan and Busan in the southeastern corner of South Korea. The city is actually referred to as the museum without walls. This is because the city has numerous historical sites. Gyeongju is home to Bulguksa Temple, famous throughout Korea as the site that was once depicted on its paper money (the old 5,000 won note). Bulguksa, which is perched atop a mountain, is a classic example of Korean Buddhist architecture. The best time to visit Bulguksa Temple is early morning. Its structure is very impressive and this is actually considered a masterpiece of the Buddhist art. It was in the 8th century when the temple was built at the time of the Silla Kingdom. Gyeongju is best seen in springtime, when the miles of cherry trees lining the main streets burst into life.

Sometimes funny, sometimes frustrating, the filming process of Gyesok Gyesok brings to light the reality of skating in Korea. The spots are rad, but so the number of concerned citizens, security, and cops are numerous.

Follow the Vans Korea Skate Team in this B Side clip and understand some of the struggle that went into the filming of Gyesok Gyesok.

This event was held on November 20, 2015, organized by AYNK (ASEAN Youth Network in Korea), attended by students from ASEAN countries, Korean and other international students from all over the world.

길거리 문화 꽃피우는 ‘버스커 공장’
It’s fall here in Korea and buskers are back out on the streets, entertaining the masses and trying to make a living.
And in one Korean city, they’re getting some professional help.
Park Se-young has the story.
In larger cities like Seoul, street performers, or buskers, are a common sight.
But over in Jeonju in Jeollabuk-do province, which has a much smaller population than the capital, the city’s buskers are much more active than in other regions.
That’s thanks to an agency called the Buskers Factory, which also encourages teams of artists to collaborate.

“People who are already performing in Jeonju or artists who are interested in busking can join us and become part of a new lineup.”

The agency even provides practice rooms for the artists.

“We work on weekdays and practice individually on the weekends. And on performance days, the teams get together.”

The agency was established over two years ago by members of a university music club with a mission to expand the opportunities for local street performers.
It has since grown to nearly 200 members and is currently working to boost Jeonju’s youth culture.

Seoul, October 2016.
A crew of 4 French skaters and a dutch rider embarked on a 10-day trip to South Korea’s capital city, on a quest to discover a truly unique playground.

Now a hyper dynamic world center at the forefront of innovation, this city has come such a long way from the archaic state it was in only a few decades ago.

Led by local connection Quentin Assandri and Jin Yob Kim (the man behind The QuietLeaf mag), the crew zipped around Seoul’s over crowded streets amidst workers and businessmen, who never really understood what they were doing playing on the streets.

Workers mingling with Players here in Seoul, where streets and buildings are illuminated day and night: the Endless Light…

BOTY 2008 – TIP (KOREA) SHOWCASE

The Battle Of The Year has come a long way. Who would have thought that BOTY would go from starting out in 1990 in a local youth culture centre with 500 hard-core fans to an arena packed with more than 12,000 roaring spectators and b-boy crews from all over the world?

BOTY has grown massively — and we have slowly realised our vision of developing the spirit of breakdance and creating an international event platform that allows B-Boys and B-Girls from all different countries to express their creativity in front of an ever-growing audience.

The BOTY 2008 finals were held in Braunschweig, Germany!

◆ New Year’s Special – Creative Future: Hallyu 4.0 ◆
Special Talk Show [Seeking the path of Creative Hallyu]
The Korean Wave began through K-Pop and K-drama and it has since added value to the brand “KOREA” by captivating people from all around the world. Hallyu was once predicted as a fad that would eventually die out in parts of Asia. However, 20 years have passed and it has grown to become a cultural content enjoyed in all parts of the world.

“Kim Soo-hyun bag brand, increases profit by 550% in Taiwan!”
“Jeon Ji-hyun bakery franchise, 100,000 loaves sold in a day!”

The total Hallyu-related exports in 2015 amounted to 15.6214 billion won!

Just like the saying “A Hallyu celebrity’s touch makes it go out of stock!”,indicated that Hallyu has evolved, even beyond K-POP – into Korean food, beauty and life style. Not only has it increased the production inducement effect through tourism and business, but it has also played a role in diplomatic relations.
On the other hand, some argue that Hallyu’s growth is coming to a halt due to China’s ban on Hallyu…

What strategies must Hallyu take to spread into the global culture? Also, what path and role should the media channels take? In this Arirang TV Special Talk Show [Seeking the path of Creative Hallyu], we will discuss Hallyu’s footprint over the last 20 years with our Korean and foreign panelists and listen to their real-life stories. Furthermore, we will even have a special time at our studio with 20 foreign Hallyu fans. We will find out what about Korea and its culture attracted these individuals to come live in Korea in the first place.
This Arirang TV New Year’s Special [Seeking the path of Creative Hallyu] will be broadcast on January 1st, 2017 at kick off the new year.

[Panelists]
Oh In-kyu / President of World Association for Hallyu Studies
Park Jun-ho / Professor of “Culture and Arts MBA” in Korea University
Jakob Dorof / K-POP and Hallyu critic and journalist
Nicolas Piccato / CEO of Panda Media (Culture exchange Korea-France)

미래기획 신년특집 Creative Future: 한류 4.0
아리랑TV 신년특집 토크쇼[Seeking the path of Creative Hallyu]
K-POP, K-DRAMA를 필두로 시작된 한류열풍은 ‘KOREA’라는 브랜드 가치를 높이며 세계인의 마음을 사로잡고 있다. 아시아 일부 지역의 일시적 현상으로 그칠 줄 알았던 한류는 20년이 지난 지금, 오히려 더욱 확산되며 전 세계인에게 사랑받는 문화콘텐츠로 급부상했다.

“김수현 모델의 가방브랜드, 대만 매출 550% 증가!”
“전지현 모델의 베이커리, 식빵 출시 당일 10만 인분 판매!”

2015년 한류로 인한 총 수출액은 무려 15조 6,124억 원!

“한류스타의 손끝만 스치면 매진!”, 이라는 문구처럼, 한류는 K-POP을 너머 한식, 뷰티 등 생활 속 깊숙하게 뿌리내렸다. 관광과 산업 분야에서의 부가가치 창출은 물론이며, 외교 소통에까지 큰 역할을 하고 있는 한류열풍.한편, 일부에선 중국발 한한령 등으로 인해 한류의 상승세가 주춤하고 있다는 견해도 제시되고 있는데.. 한류는 세계문화를 선도하기 위해 어떻게 도약해야 할까? 그리고 그 안에서 한국 문화의 교두보인 미디어 매체들이 나아갈 길과 역할은 무엇일까?
아리랑TV 신년특집 토크쇼[Seeking the path of Creative Hallyu]에서는 한류의 다양한 분야를 대표하는 국내외 패널들과 함께 한류 20년의 발자취를 되짚어 보는 한편, 한류 메인스트림에 몸담고 있는 이들의 생생한 ‘실전 증언’까지 들어보는 시간을 마련한다.또한 스튜디오에 초청된 20명의 외국인 한류팬들과 현장에서 직접 소통의 시간도 기다리고 있다. 한류에 반해 한국으로 온 외국인들이 직접 보고 느낀 한국 생활과 문화의 매력은 무엇일까.

2017년 새해를 맞아 아리랑TV에서 준비한 신년특집 토크쇼 [Seeking the path of Creative Hallyu]는 2017년을 여는 1월 1일 방영.
