In order to look at the ways in which politics of identity is involved in globalization and localization, this paper discusses about the recent scene of Korean popular music focusing on the concept of mobility.

These second generations of Korean immigrants have flowed into Korea since the early 90s, and have been forming a big power group in Korean music industry. This paper discusses about cultural and political discourses surrounding a teen idol who decided to choose U.S. citizenship over Korean citizenship, and explores on the ways in which popular music evokes a sense of material politics of identity.

Globalization and Nationalism in Korean Popular Music
Abstract:
Globalization and identity are two most vigorously debated terms in the modern critical
studies. In order to look at the ways in which politics of identity is involved in
globalization and localization, this paper discusses about the recent scene of Korean
popular music focusing on the concept of mobility. More specific consideration will be
given to the recent controversy about so-called ‘a group of salmon,’ referring to those
musicians who revisit their mother country after growing up in countries outside Korea.
These second generations of Korean immigrants have flowed into Korea since the early
90s, and have been forming a big power group in Korean music industry. This paper
discusses about cultural and political discourses surrounding a teen idol who decided to
choose U.S. citizenship over Korean citizenship, and explores on the ways in which
popular music evokes a sense of material politics of identity. Throughout the discussion, I
will argue that nationalism is not a simple reactionary localism against globalization, but
an aggressive negotiation among economic, cultural and political powers.
