dc.description.abstractCurrently, the United States continually maintains a military presence in the South Korea even after the Korean War. This has greatly affected Korean culture through the widespread use of English. As such, the notion of Americanization developed through militarization and is referred to as the action of making something American in character or nationality. Instead of rejecting the influence of the United States, Korean culture localized what was once globalized through modern popular culture. Since the late 1990's and early 2000's, Korean Pop (Kpop) music, films, and Kdramas (television shows) have grown substantially in popularity and productionresulting in a strong international following. Many examples of American influences, such as the military,are seen in these entertainment fields because ofglobalization and localization (glocalization). This paper investigates the effects of Americanization through militarization from the Korean War on South Korea's current military. By examining different time frames, current examples of Korean pop culture will be utilized to explain localized American influences regarding the military.
