Terms You May Not Know

Terms that you may not know, that is used within my blog posts.


Dance cover: is when someone takes another’s choreography and films/performs it themselves. WHILE making it clear to everyone that the choreography is indeed a COVER and not something they made themselves.

Hallyu Wave: Recently, people from around the world have been focusing on this country. This large focus has been dubbed as the “Hallyu Wave”. The “Hallyu Wave” is said to have begun sometime in the 1990s when S.Korea first began exporting music to places such as China and Japan.

Mostly the focus is on the country’s pop culture industry mainly the drama (tv shows, kinda of like soap operas), music, fashion, video games and beauty.

A low focus is on the country’s comic books and animation, though they are exported out of the country. Many of S.Korea’s comic books are mislabeled as “Manga” (Japanese comic books) so they can be sold due to the high popularity of manga.

However, thanks to this Hallyu Wave even S.Korea’s culture, history, government, medicial field (espeically plastic surgery), technology, etc is getting some recogition. 

S.Korea: A shorterned version of South Korea. A country located within the continent of Asia. This country is considered part of East Asia.

Recently, people from around the world have been focusing on this country. This large focus has been dubbed as the “Hallyu Wave”.
