The global phenomenon known as the Hallyu, or the Korean Wave, has brought Korean pop culture to every corner of the Internet. In this paper, I discuss the impact Hallyu has had in France specifically and examine the online subculture of female-created fanfiction that has arisen from it. I postulate that, for a French woman, the act of participating in fandom and/or writing slash fanfiction about Korean pop idols constitutes a political act of rebellion against the patriarchy and gender norms, even if the fan herself is unaware of it.
