SEOUL, July 15 (Korea Bizwire) — The massive popularity of Korean dramas in Japan has resulted in a series of offline exhibitions despite the ongoing pandemic.
Studio Dragon, a South Korean drama studio, began hosting an exhibition on Korean dramas in Tokyo on July 10, attracting an endless stream of local visitors.
The exhibition, held jointly with Japan’s TV Asahi, consists of three halls dedicated to popular Korean series including “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?”, “Start-Up”, and “Vincenzo”.
The exhibition also features a photo zone, film set replicas, props, and costumes used in the series.
Japan’s craze for Korean dramas began with “Crash Landing on You” starring Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin, and heated up with “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay”, “Extracurricular” and others.
Earlier this year, an exhibition on “Crash Landing on You” took place in Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, and Nagoya, attracting more than 90,000 visitors.
