The term "Korean Wave" ("Hallyu" in Korean)was coined by the Chinese press a little more than a decade ago to refer to the popularity of Korean pop culture in China. The boom started with the export of Korean television dramas (miniseries) to China in the late 1990s.

Very useful book. I already knew most of the things in it, but it was interesting to read about them again.
