Korea in the 1970s-90s I love the 70s-90s. Can anyone tell me about Korea during these years? I really want to know about them, but I can't find anything about it. Were the Beatles, Elvis, and Nirvana popular there too? Was there ever a Korean flower child hippie movement? We're drugs like LSD and Speed used often? Were there parties, and special slang terms, and free thinking? Could you tell me where I could find this information?

The Beatles, Elvis, and Nirvana were popular in Korea. Flower child hippie movement was insignificant. Marijuana and meth were rarely used. Parties, and special slang terms, and free thinking were suppressed under a military dictatorship in 1970s-80s. Refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_South_Korea#Third_Republic_1963-1972 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-pop#History

Maybe this could be an interesting topic for a "discussion"? (http://www.italki.com/discussions/korean). I bet watching some Korean films from that time would be interesting if anyone could recommend any!
