1. Visiting the Korean Cultural Center was so much fun. I learned a lot about Korean culture from our guide. I never knew that blood type was an important part of meeting someone and finding a match. I also enjoyed learning about the different regions of Korea and Korean pop culture. While we were at the Pop culture section of the center, I watched a music video where the singers sounded like they were rapping and the video took place in a stereotypical “urban” area, with graffiti, baggy clothing, and the works. I am wondering if there are areas of Korea that are low-income with tagging and gangs, or if this is just an idea adopted from our hip-hop videos? I also wonder if the consumers of this media understand the mean behind these symbols similarly to people in the U.S. and if they know how stereotyped these concepts are in our media today? Or maybe this video was made for an American KPop audience.
