In this article, the consumption of Korean media by East Asians will be examined using the frameworks of hybridity and pan-Asian identity. Then, a textual analysis of postings on the fansite of Bae Young Jun, one of the most famous Korean, will be analyzed to understand what fans of Korean pop culture get out of these Korean media products. This analysis also will be used to see if fans' interactions with Korean pop culture have influenced their understandings and impressions of Korea
