Japan Wave

Just a short post.

This following statement is confined to those who are staying in the continent of Asia.

When someone says that they're buying imported goods, the origin of the import will always assumed to be from the West.
This is not necessarily true.

You don't need to look far; just see the logo on your computer screen, what does it say?
Mine says Samsung, which is from Korea.
Processor? BenQ from Taiwan.
The only thing that is really foreign is my keyboard and mouse, which is the Swiss Logitech.

You might be surprised that 85% of the stuff you own are Japanese or Korean brands!
Even my electric guitar is from a Japanese brand, Ibanez. Great specs, I might add.

The Japanese and Korean wave have indeed invaded our homes long before anime, manga and dramas did.
They will soon change the definition of globalization. It will no longer be defined as the spread of Western culture; it'll be Eastern instead.
First it was household items, then it's pop culture.
Soon, it will be the world.
Think about it.
