dc.description"K-Beauty" (Korean Beauty) can be considered as an explicit representation of the South Korean cosmetic sector and a phenomenon that has begun to influence the global cosmetic industry itself. Similarly, this phenomenon has influenced trends and consumption habits in the field of skin care. This article analyzes the characteristics of the South Korean cosmetic sector with the aim of making an academic contribution to the study of one of the most dynamic and innovative industries in the world. Making this characterization is of particular importance as natural and active ingredients obtained from Colombian biodiversity can be potentially used in Korean skincare formulations. Which represents an opportunity for Colombian companies in the Korean cosmetic-industry value chain. This is the result of a comprehensive literature review of the Korean cosmetic industry. The review has been complemented with semi-structured interviews conducted in South Korea during 2017 and 2018 with the support of consumers and scholars from Kyung Hee University (Seoul) and representatives of the Korean cosmetic industry. This is the product of the current research carried out by the Observatory for the Negotiation and Implementation of Trade Agreements (ONAAC after its initials in Spanish) of Universidad EAFIT (International Studies Group) on the opportunities for the agribusiness and biotechnology sector derived from the FTA between Colombia and South Koreaeng
dc.descriptionEl denominado “K-Beauty” (Korean Beauty o Belleza Coreana) es una representación explícita del sector cosmético de Corea del Sur y un fenómeno que comienza a influenciar a la cosmética global. De igual forma, esta manifestación influye sobre tendencias y hábitos de consumo en materia del cuidado de la piel. En este artículo se realiza un análisis de las particularidades del sector cosmético surcoreano con el objetivo de realizar una contribución académica al estudio de una de las industrias más dinámicas e innovadoras del mundo. Dicha caracterización es de particular importancia toda vez que en el marco del Tratado de Libre Comercio (TLC) entre Colombia y Corea del Sur se han identificado oportunidades para que empresas colombianas puedan insertarse en la cadena de valor de la industria cosmética coreana a través de la exportación de ingredientes naturales o componentes activos derivados de la biodiversidad colombiana. Este artículo es resultado de la revisión documental y el desarrollo de entrevistas semiestructuradas realizadas en Corea del Sur durante 2017 y 2018, con el apoyo de consumidores, académicos de la Universidad de Kyung Hee (Seúl) y representantes de la industria cosmética coreana.spa
