Ghost singers: the singing voice in Korean pop cinema

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Korean popular culture exports have rapidly increased in popularity across Asia, and, more recently, beyond Asia. This chapter examines two fictional film portrayals of K-pop singers. It addresses how the centrality of the voice in these films illustrates concerns over competitiveness, the K-pop industry, globalisation, commodification, and commercialisation.
