Hong Kong's new talent wave & discussion with Anthony Fung


Hong Kong's new talent wave & discussion with Anthony Fung

The so-called Korean wave of popular entertainment, driven by South Korean movies, TV shows, and pop music, has been growing in influence across Asia since the 1980s.
It has now burgeoned into being a global phenomenon fuelled by the internet and social media. But in its heyday Cantopop and Hong Kong cinema in the 1970s and 1980s was what inspired some of the most dedicated fans across Asia. More recently younger generation Hongkongers are likely to have fallen under the spell of Korean boy bands like BTS and girl groups such as Blackpink, while TV watchers have been bingeing on Korean dramas. Since 2019 though, there’s been a revival of enthusiasm for Hong Kong’s home-grown talent, and it all started with a TV reality show.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse. 

Starting 3 April, the programme is aired every Friday on RTHK 31 at 19:30.
