On November 2, the Korea Program’s Future Visions conference closed with a panel featuring Siwon Choi — a member of Korean boy band Super Junior — and SM Entertainment USA director and music producer Dominique Rodriguez. Panelists spoke about the global reach of Korean pop music (K-pop) and how it could be a key stimulator of Korean studies in America and the rest of the West.

A recap of the panel by The Stanford Daily is now available online.
