The Korean Culture and Information Service (KOCIS), an affiliate of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said that 25 overseas Korean Cultural Centers in 21 countries around the world ran K-pop Academy classes in 2019. The program, launched in 2016, was designed to give overseas Korean wave fans the chance to learn the latest K-pop songs and dances from professional South Korean instructors and trainers. A total of 2,608 people took the program in countries like Russia, Thailand, and the United States, up 15 percent from a year earlier, according to KOCIS data.
