LTCS2023 – Korean Popular Culture: Korean wave97.2
When I took this course in my final year of high school, I was surprised how easy this course was. With my interest already in Korean Popular Culture, this was a great course to learn more about the values and history behind Korea.
The film reviews were simple and easy to write since the handouts also provided some help if you wrote down some notes in contact hours. The only minor thing I had a problem with in this course was the final exam which depended on earlier content rather than a combination of everything we had learnt.
Overall, it's a great course to take as an elective or if you're completing a Korean major/minor. Definitely recommend if you're interested in K-Pop, K-Dramas or K-Films.

This course gave a wonderful insight into Korean culture and history. The lecture content was fascinating and in depth. The mix of lecture topics gave us a better insight into multiple aspects of Korean society (and its interactions with the world), as well as to better understand why Koreans are the way they are; their values and traditions.
The assessment for this class was wonderful, the break up into quizzes and film reviews made the assessment manageable for students and helped to consolidate the in class learning.
