Grevin's first Asian museum waxes lyrical over K-pop

People take photos with a waxwork model of US President Barack Obama on the opening day of the first Asian outpost of France's famous waxwork museum, Musee Grevin, in Seoul on July 30, 2015Psy, Paris Hilton and Queen Elizabeth II all made it, but South Korean President Park Geun-Hye turned down her chance of immortality in the first Asian outpost of France’s famous waxwork museum, Musee Grevin, that opened in Seoul Thursday. The new museum’s focus is firmly on the world of entertainment and, in particular, stars of the “Hallyu” or “Korean Wave” of pop songs and TV melodramas that have become the country’s most potent cultural export. As a result, waxworks of global icons like Michael Jackson and Madonna rub shoulders with the likes of actress Choi Ji-Woo — star of one of the original Hallyu dramas “Winter Sonata” who enjoys a major fan following in Japan.
