Pop City by Youjeong Oh

This product was recommended by Anna Caldwell from Caldwell Media Arts

Since the 1990’s South Korea has been well ahead of the curve when it comes to incorporating their popular culture into destination marketing. Known as the Korean Wave or Hallyu local and state leaders learned that fast growing pop culture forms like tv dramas and k-pop were ideal vehicles to drive interest in Korean culture that would lead to an increase in tourism.

Pop City examines the impact of this carefully executed marketing scheme over the past 20+ years and uses data to show how successful the Korean Wave has been at promoting western tourism to urban locations throughout the country. For those interested in location marketing this book is interesting as a case study of the successful synthesis of location based marketing and cultural entertainment.
