Mythologized Glocalization of Popular Culture: a Postcolonial Perspective

This netnographic research reveals that the glocalization process of popular culture (Korean) cannot be reduced to a uni-discursive thesis that immortalizes the themes of cultural imperialism. Globalization of popular culture necessitates hybridity that uses the same traditional ingredients but transforms into a new taste based on a new cultural recipe.
