Here comes the flood, perspectives of gender, sexuality, and stereotype in the Korean wave, edited by Marcy L. Tanter

This book breaks down the stereotypes often expected of Korean popular culture, showing how the lines of gender, sexuality, and stereotype in Hallyu productions are often blurred to be palatable to Korean audiences or clarified to attract global audiences
