[article] Hallyu: Move over girls, the boys are back!

The Korea Times 11/18/2010, by Han SangHee — [excerpts]

It seems like only yesterday that young, handsome and talented male singers and actors paved the path for local television programs to debut overseas. The word “hallyu” has become a household term in so many Asian countries, including Japan, China and Thailand, and the torch has been passed to yet another group of talented stars, particularly K-pop girl groups. Just when fans may have thought the pretty girls have captivated Asia, the boys, both old and new, have jumped right back into the picture, but on a more diverse scale…

…The Face Shop hired SS501 member Kim Hyun-joong, considering his high popularity in Japan, China and Taiwan, thanks to the hit drama “Boys Over Flowers,” while Nature Republic brought boy band JYJ to their commercial stands along with Rain. Tony Moly invited actor Song Joong-ki as their main man, while Saem managed to get actor and singer Lee Seung-gi…

…Rain’s new television series “The Fugitive” will hopefully reach American fans as well, as the production company said that they are discussing specific details with their American counterparts….
