Reviews

"A fine addition to the highly recommended series Global Popular Music (edited by Franco Fabbri and Goffredo Plastino), this volume on popular music in Korea (short for South Korea) is as comprehensive as such a book can be. … [T]his book provides an expansive overview, written by an expert team of researchers." —Popular Music and Society

"Made in Korea, part of a Routledge series of edited volumes with similar titles and fromats, such as Made in Japan, Made in Brazil, and Made in Italy, addresses this relative lacuuna. With contributors from various social sciences and humanities disciplines, the book is an assemblage of seventeen essays oragnized into four sections: history, genres, artitsts and issues." —Hyung-Gu Lynn, The University of British Columbia, Pacifica Affairs: Volume 91, No. 1 - Marhc 2018
