Korean Idols and Actors become Brand Ambassadors and Diplomacy Actors

Korean Idols and Actors become Brand Ambassadors and Diplomacy Actors

The entry and development of Korean culture in Indonesia shows us how foreign culture processes into a country. The Korean Wave itself is a cultural phenomenon that refers to the popularity of South Korean culture to the outside world from the 1990s. Well, the term Korean Wave was originally coined by a journalist from Beijing in 1997 to show how the development of Korean culture and entertainment in China. The internet and television became one of the media to introduce Korean culture. With the internet, it is very easy for us to see the culture and entertainment world.

The beginning of the entry of Korean culture into Indonesia began with one of the television stations airing one of the Korean dramas entitled Endless Love in 2002 and aired again by RCTI. The Korean Wave was very accepted by us and several television stations aired several variations of Korean dramas, such as The Heirs, Full House and Boys Before Flower. At that time Indonesian television stations not only aired Korean dramas, but also aired the music program “Music Bank” with which our society became familiar with Korean pop music or K-POP.

Starting from Korean dramas aired on Indonesian television stations, now people are looking at Korean pop music “K-POP”. Just like the beginning of Korean dramas, K-Pop also began to enter Indonesia in the early 2000s. The first girl groups and boy groups that boomed when they entered Indonesia were TVXQ, Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, and Big Bang. The fame of K-Pop was added by them holding music concerts in Indonesia. Currently, there are more than 10 K-POP groups that hold concerts, usually they not only hold concerts but also fan meetings. Girl groups and boy groups that successfully held concerts and fan meetings are NCT, BTS, BlackPink, Twice, EXO, Red Velvet, Seventeen, and many more.

Along with the times, K-Pop and K-Drama are not only entertainment for the Indonesian people but also as diplomacy actors in cooperation between Korea and Indonesia and become Brand Ambassadors of Indonesian products. One of the members of the boy group Super Junior, Choi Siwon was appointed as the 50th ambassador of diplomatic relations between Korea and Indonesia. Choi Siwon was directly appointed and inaugurated by the South Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs in April 2023. With the appointment of Choi Siwon, both countries hope that the relationship between South Korea and Indonesia will progress. Both countries also hope that the younger generation will be aware of the relationship between the two countries.
