The Discovery Channel is to air a documentary about Korea that will include a segment titled “Finding Hallyuwood,” which will introduce the world of K-pop. The documentary will feature Korean celebrities Lee Byung-hun, Super Junior’s Si-won, B.A.P. and global star Psy, whose “Gangnam Style” was recently listed as the 25th best song of the year by Rolling Stones magazine.

The documentary is a five-part series called “Korea Next” focusing on Korean culture, tradition, technology, religion and the entertainment industry. Actor Lee Byung-hun, Psy, Si-won and the members of B.A.P. will discuss the future of K-pop and factors behind the global hallyu wave.

The six-member hip-hop boy band B.A.P. will introduce the story behind their debut and the K-pop industry as a whole, as well as the secrets behind the music’s domestic and international success.

The documentary will be aired in 32 countries in the Asia-Pacific region on Dec. 15 and 16.
