Description

The Korean Wave has sparked a global interest in all things Korean. One area doing particularly well is the domestic cosmetics industry. The Korea Customs Service says over 140-thousand U.S. dollars worth of locally-produced cosmetics were exported in June. This marks the highest monthly total since records were first collected in year 2000. The record showing was mainly attributed to increased demand from China,... taking up almost half of Korea's total cosmetics exports. Korean products account for just under one third of China's cosmetics market. Industry experts say the Korean Wave, driven by Korean pop music and dramas have triggered explosive growth in the local cosmetics industry.
