[Paparazzi Corner] Signs that you are already riding the Korean wave

25 July 2016, Singapore – As a professional in the corporate world myself, we are often judged for being closely involved and following the Korean entertainment scene. There is actually nothing too wrong in having a hobby and enjoying all the pretty people and well scripted varieties, and extremely synchronised choreographed performances. In fact, this obsession with the Korean scene is also not too different from people who are obsessed with anime, food or Hello Kitty for that matter.

So what am I talking about on Paparazzi Corner? As much as many of us or many friends or colleagues around you would not want to admit it, they are probably unknowingly part of the wave. Deny as much as they want, and below are some obvious signs they are in this together; so time for you to ditch the serious image and enjoy the entertainment.

It’s not difficult to hear K-pop songs all around you, especially when going shopping. Korean restaurants, Korean skincare boutiques always plays those music videos and music all day long; and I can clearly see you grooving to those tunes while enjoying shopping or food. Music is universal, so who ever said you need to understand the lyrics to appreciate the music?
