The number of Korean language educators has reached about 300 thousand worldwide as the number of students learning Korean language is rapidly growing all over the world.

In this lecture, Prof. You is going to introduce the history and the current situation of the Korean Wave, and provide a vision of the future of the Korean Wave and the Korean language education in the United States.
