Time Out says

Most of us are still getting to grips with the fact it’s 2021, meanwhile the V&A Museum has already announced a series of exhibitions for its 2022 programme. Chill out, V&A. One of the stand-outs is ‘Hallyu! The Korean Wave’ a large-scale exploration of Korean pop-culture, and the first of its kind in the UK. Hallyu (meaning Korean Wave) started gaining traction in the 1990s, encompassing Korean music, movies, fashion and online games. The exhibition will take a close look at the explosion of K-Pop bands such as BTS as well as the 2012 ‘Gangnam Style’ craze. The BTS Army of stans essentially rule the internet, and are responsible for some brilliant online activism, so there’s a whole lot to explore from 2020 alone. More details will be released soon.
