Absolutely insane how quickly Korean led entertainment has caught onto the US like K-pop, we now have one of the most watched shows in internet history, a male and female and a Director win a major TV acting award, an Oscar winning actress, and of course the one that got the ball rolling with Parasite winning Best Picture and its Director Best Director. Then of course there are other things like Masked Singer which is huge in the US on top of a US version of I Can See Your Voice
