Here Are The K-Drama And K-Pop Artists Featured In The “Hello Hallyu” Book

This book features interesting details and beautiful photographs of some of your favorite Hallyu stars like EXO, Momoland, Park Bo-gum, and NOIR

The newest Korean culture fan book, tackling the growth of Hallyu (Korean wave) specifically in the Philippines, is finally available from ABS-CBN Books, and we’re excited to get our hands on them!

The book, titled Hello Hallyu, is authored by Aya Villa-Real, a certified fangirl herself and co-founder of company FanLive, which brings in Asian and Korean acts in the country. She shares, “I have been into K-Pop and K-culture since I was in high school, and that interest became a huge part of my career as well. So sharing my experiences with newer fans and the fans who have been here for a while was really important because some of us did go through a lot before Hallyu became popular just like how we know it now. Writing Hello Hallyu really made me realize how far Hallyu has gotten big in the Philippines and also how the community and fans were vital in its growth.”
