TV shows/music and Bryn Mawr/s aesthetic sense

Evaaaaaa's picture

It has struck me when I found how popular K-dramas and K-pops are in the US. It's not that K-drama and K-pop are popular in China (they are VERY popular), but because of the power dynamics between US and Korea, it would make sense to me if American drama and American music are popular in Korea but K-pop is not a thing at all in the US. Instead, I found my roommate sometimes watches K-drama all night, and my other roommate has shown great interest in Asian guys. There are also some friends who show me their music playlist and it is full of K-pop. 

What TV shows do Bryn Mawr students watch? What music do Bryn Mawr students listen to? How have these TV shows and music shape Bryn Mawr students' aesthetic sense?
