Join us every 1st Wednesday of the month at 4:30pm to watch a current and popular K-Drama or movie here at the library. Come see why this genre of television is taking the world by storm!
What are K-Dramas?
K-Dramas also known as Korean dramas are fictitious, scripted television shows or movies produced in South Korea that have gained international popularity due to the rise in Hallyu or the Korean Wave of arts and entertainment. The shows are similar in format to American soap operas (e.g. Young and the Restless) and are broadcast weekly.
Like soap operas, K-Dramas are usually melodramatic, hence the word ‘drama’ in K-Drama, but they can also include romance, action, mystery and comedy. These shows are also in Korean and are accompanied by subtitles in English, Spanish and more, so international fans can understand and follow along. Light refreshments (Korean snacks) will be provided.
