This Special Section aims to showcase the vibrancy of new research in Korean Screen Cultures Studies. It does so by bringing together four articles by early career researchers in the field, each of whom is publishing in English for the first time. The articles address different forms of media, including genre film, TV chat shows, the television drama industry and K-pop music videos. Although this Special Section merely aims to bring together new research on Korean screen media, the articles collected here are linked by a loose theme. They explore ways in which different types of identity are constructed and negotiated through both media texts and their production processes.
