By Jeff Chung


Korean entertainment has been in Hawaii for a while, but the next wave of Korean culture will be tourists. Korean Air already increased its number of direct flights between Korea and Hawaii by three flights per week in June. Now the airline is hinting at four additional flights per week as early as this spring to total two flights a day. Hawaiian Air will also begin direct flights four times a week between South Korea and Honolulu beginning Jan. 12. By spring there could be 18 weekly flights between South Korea and Honolulu, which will equal a tremendous increase in Korean tourism.
