With the occurrence of WFH, resulting in human dependence on the internet. On the other hand, this dependence on the internet is really being used by the Kpop (Korean Pop) Industry to further strengthen its existence in Indonesia. This was marked by the official presence of the SM Entertainment representative office in Jakarta. SM entertainment then brought NCT in 2019 to take over the Indonesian market by presenting content about Indonesia.
