"A very timely analysis for a radically shifting construction and
representation of masculinities in the era of globalization. By heavily
mobilizing the notion of hybridity and mugukjeok, the study shows how
transculturation and regionalization are taking place in such a condensing
way." -- Soyoung Kim, Korean National University of the Arts
- Examines the reception and re-production of South Korean masculinities.
- Investigates transcultural consumption of three iconic figures -- the
middle-aged Japanese female fandom of actor Bae Yong-Joon 裴勇俊, the
Western online cult fandom of the thriller film Oldboy《原罪犯》, and the
Singaporean fandom of the pop-star Rain.
- Also discusses recently emerging versatile masculinity within the
transcultural pop production paradigm represented by K-pop idol boy bands.
Sun Jung is a research fellow in the School of Communication and the Arts at
Victoria University, Australia.
