KATHMANDU, Dec 7: K-pop is taking over the world. It has been for quite some time now. But its popularity has also led to a curiosity about the Korean culture. Termed as the “Hallyu Wave”, the Korean culture is gaining a strong foothold in various regions of the world. Furthermore, dramas, travel vlogs, and pop culture have hugely contributed to its rising popularity. And since food is such an integral part of any culture, there’s also an increase in the demand for Korean food. In Nepal too, every store these days seems to stack up Korean instant noodles (known as ramen) and it isn’t long before they need to restock them again.
