Korean Wave Titles

#
Korean Wave: (Style) In early 200X, an increase in the popularity Korean live-action dramas, music and mixed-media cultural exports was given the slang-term: The ↗Korean wave (or Korea fever). Japan has long been outsourcing their animation production to Korea, so it was just a matter of time before Korea began creating their own animation and ↗CGI titles for the local and export markets. (example: Wonderful Days). Even Korean manga (called ↗manhwa) has been swept up in the wave, proving to be increasingly popularity to such an extent that certain select manhwa titles have been licensed by Japanese Producers as source material for anime series (ie: Freezing and Kurokami.)
