sdfsdfs

Students took in a viewing of the music video for Gangnam Style, by South Korean rapper PSY, in Amy Arim Kim’s (Undergraduate, CAS, Economics and International Relations) presentation, “Hallyu as a Response: Globalization, Popular Culture and Their Effects on Youth,” at the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future Monday October 22, 2012. The student seminar and reception, “Young Asia: The Past and the Future” was co-sponsored by BU Center for the Study of Asia (BUCSA), the BU Center for the Humanities, the Modern Language and Comparative Literature Department, the Pardee Center and Asian student organizations. The event was a kick-off to Asia Film Week. The Gangnam Style video has been viewed more than 500-million times world wide, and was the prime example of the broad implications of exporting Korean culture in Kim’s presentation.
