The panel seeks to highlight the influence of KPOP in Australia resulting in the growth of grassroot activities as a consequence of the lack of mainstream media support for Kpop content. One of the presenters will also highlight the lack of integration between local Chinese promoters with mainstream audiences which has contributed to the lack of Australian representation in Chinese media and shows.


The Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) is the peak body of university experts and educators on Asia in Australia. Established in 1976, we promote and support the study of Asia in Australian universities and knowledge of Asia among the broader community. Our membership is drawn mainly from academics and students, but also includes industry and government Asia experts. We take a strong interest in promoting knowledge about Asia in schools and in contributing to state and Commonwealth government policies related to Asia. We provide informed comment on Asia to a broad public through our bulletin, Asian Currents, and specialist research articles in our journal, Asian Studies Review. Four book series published under our auspices cover Southeast Asia, South Asia, East Asia and Women in Asia.
