Catch The Korean Wave
Channell Jordan-Grier is fascinated with South Korean culture. She delved more into it while participating in WFDD's Radio 101 education program. Radio 101 teaches high school students journalism skills that they use to explore issues important to them.
The influence of South Korean pop-culture is rippling across parts of the United States, again. Last year, artist Psy flooded dance clubs and network television with the rhythmic-sway of his song, Gangnam Style. And last week, the Korean girl’s group, f(x), performed in an Austin, Texas, club. In her Radio 101 essay, Greensboro resident Jordan-Grier discovers the international economic importance of the Korean Wave phenomenon.
Jordan-Grier produced this story with assistance from WFDD Senior Producer Kathryn Mobley and Radio 101 Instructor Lopa Shah. WFDD's Education Initiative Coordinator is Greg Keener.
