Doing Hallyu! The Korean Wave

From K-Pop to K-drama, the dynamic and popular culture of South Korea has captivated the world over. Hallyu! — meaning Korean Wave — has transformed the country’s image from one devastated by the Korean War to that of a leading cultural powerhouse.

The first major exhibition dedicated to Hallyu charts its impact on a diverse range of industries, including beauty, fashion, film and music, thorough around 200 objects as well as pop culture ephemera and digital displays.

Notable highlights include an immersive re-creation of the bathroom in Parasite and the iconic pink suit jacket worn by PSY in his viral 2012 hit single Gangnam Style. Also featured are K-drama costumes and props, including the pink guard costumes and green tracksuit from the hit Netflix series Squid Game, and monumental artworks by such celebrated names as Nam June Paik.
