From South Korea to T&T

From South Korea to T&T is a 2018 documentary film about the Korean presence in Trinidad and Tobago as well as its fan culture. It highlights the existence of the fandom and its growth in the country; bringing about more knowledge on the culture through various interviews and talks about the challenges the fandom faces in trying to fit into society. At the time of filming, the members were criticised and experienced cyberbullying through social media due to the ignorance of fellow citizens who simply didn’t understand and/or refused to. The documentary attempts to pinpoint the reasons for the rejection of the culture in order to address it.
