YouTube globalizes Hallyu
The first wave of Hallyu started in Japan a decade ago with the Korean TV drama “Winter Sonata.” Its hero Bae Yong-joon won hearts of Japanese ladies, who gave him the affectionate nickname “Yonsama.” Bae and a number of handsome actors led the first wave of Hallyu, mostly in Japan and other Asian countries as non-Koreans came to enjoy Korean dramas.
The second wave of Hallyu reached beyond Asia, with singers like Rain, Boa and the Wonder Girls advancing into the United States.
The third wave of Hallyu has broadened the sphere. It has become a global phenomenon. Music videos of idol stars like Girls’ Generation, 2NE1, Big Bang and 2PM are popular around the world. Behind this new wave of Hallyu is YouTube.
DJ Poet is a Filipino-American and a member of Los Angeles ‘music elite’, two-time grammy nominee. He is also known to be one of the producer, official DJ and friends of Black Eyed Peas Will.I.Am and Apl.de.ap.
DJ Poet was off to Korea last February 7 with another producer Josh One to produce with 2NE1. DJ Poet is also seen in 2NE1 TV season 2 as he work with the girls in London to record song in preparation for their U.S promotions.
Now, DJ Poet tweets on the 14th that he had so much fun staying in Korea with YG Family especially with 2NE1 and Bigbang. As we all know YG receives lots of love call from different american producers and writers to produce and write songs with them.
So now, let’s hope YGE’s main man Yang Hyunsuk doesn’t prolong our agony to see 2NE1 soars to U.S market.

Professor Lee attended the 2010 YG Family concert and he shared some thoughts about his experience.
I went to the YG family Concert. At the entrance my daughter’s manager courteously welcomed my students and me. The waiting room was crowded but I could easily find my daughter CL. “Hello father!” Sandara greeted me in a loud voice. Yesterday, I couldn’t sleep because I was worried about the awkwardness with the members, but that worry disappeared.
The light went off and it became noisy, but the moment the lights came back on a burst of shout started. The first performance started off with Chaerin’s rap. I then took the glow stick that was stashed inside my bosom. There were shouting, festive wave of lights, and stage lighting. For the first time in my life I felt such an explosive madness; there was no one who had their arms or legs crossed. After three hours into the show Big Bang, Se7en, Gummy, Psy, and 2NE1 all came out on stage. CL was sitting on the steps of the stage as the final curtain fell. She seemed to be looking at the people going back to their seats and the seats without lights.
I was on the subway going home, a lot of teenage fans were also returning to their own location. What did they find through today’s fever? They experienced a kind of fever that their school never taught them and it will be dissolved into their future life. While enjoying the performance I thought to myself “Universities should be fun like this.” Chaerin’s appearance sitting on the stage glimmered. I sent a sms to my daughter “Chaerin, come on”, shortly after she answered back “ok!”. I didn’t know why but I was not tired at all because in that moment I got to share and communicate with my daughter within the three hours.
