yoon eun hye, suzy bae, boa
What is Hallyu? Hallyu Wave is a "neologism referring to the increase in the popularity of South Korean culture." It stands for the growing appeal of Korean culture, entertainment, export, etc. in other countries. So who are the female stars responsible for bringing Korean popularity all over the world? Let's take a look!
Recently singer turned actress Yoon Eun Hye won the "Korean Drama Daesang" award in the female actress category which prompted me to do a post on the biggest Korean female Hallyu stars. So let's get started folks!
I remember the days when Yoon Eun Hye was just a sweet, subpar singer in a forgetful girl group back in the day, until one drama changed her life. Since her days on "Goong," Yoon Eun Hye's life has been one insane rollercoaster ride. She went from a cute girl in a no named girl group to an international superstar!
Suzy Bae is considered a Hallyu star. Yes, she may be young and yes she may have just started in the industry but no one comes close to this girl's fame and success. At such a young age, Suzy has managed to become the most talked about Korean female star, beating out the likes of SNSD's Yoona and other big names in the industry. Thanks to her commercial success, endorsements, and hit dramas, Suzy Bae is well on her way to becoming bigger than she is now.
Korea's pop princess, BoA is massive. It's been 13 years since she started out and there's never been a point in her career where she's slowed down or lost popularity. BoA is considered one of the founders of the Hallyu Wave. BoA has paved the way for Korean stars to make it in Japan and has broken more barriers than most in the K-pop industry.
Any actress or artist that has crossed over and spread Korean culture around the world is considered a Hallyu star.
