Join Rosalie Kim, Lead Curator of Hallyu! The Korean Wave, to delve into the meteoric rise of popular culture from South Korea that has captured the imagination and attention of a global audience. Through highlights showcased in the exhibition, she will explore how Korea evolved from a war-torn country to a global leading trendsetter with the concerted effort between state, private investors and a formidable group of creatives.

Rosalie Kim joined the V&A in 2012 as the Curator of the Korean collection in the Asian Department and is the Lead Curator of the V&A exhibition ‘Hallyu! The Korean Wave’. With a background in architecture and philosophy, her interest lies in the making of contemporary culture, craft and design in the digital age. Prior to the V&A, she worked as an architect in Korea and Europe, and led architectural design studios at Kingston University in London.
