|Title:||The Glocalization of U.S. sports in South Korea||Authors:||Cho, Y.||Issue Date:||Jun-2009||Citation:||Cho, Y. (2009-06). The Glocalization of U.S. sports in South Korea. Sociology of Sport Journal 26 (2) : 320-334. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This study uses the lens of glocalization (Robertson, 1995) to explore how the expansion of U.S. sports in South Korea since the late 1990s influences the de/reconstitution of the national among local sports fans. I specifically look at how the impact of global sports such as Major League Baseball transforms structures of the national among Korean sports fans. I conclude that the term individuated nationalism best explains the ways that fans rationalize national fandom of Major League Baseball in terms of their personal tastes. © 2009 Human Kinetics, Inc.||Source Title:||Sociology of Sport Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/53221||ISSN:||07411235|
