Ji-yoon An is a scholar of East Asian Studies with interests in cultural trends and flows, particularly in Korean screen culture. Broadly speaking, her work focuses on Korean society and the ways that changing social values and ideologies are reflected, reworked, and imagined in visual culture. Her doctorate research examined family representations in contemporary South Korean films. Her current research interests include: trends in South Korean blockbusters, youth market and generic hybridity in K-dramas, and gender politics across South Korean visual culture.
