□ On the back of the emerging trend in global cross-border e-commerce, Chinese cross-border online shopping has exhibited extraordinary growth. This phenomenon provides Korean manufacturers and e-commerce platforms with invaluable opportunities to expand into a broader market via e-commerce exports. Accordingly, future strategies should focus on attracting new Chinese consumers, building a powerful brand image and improving product quality and post-purchase services, while taking full advantage of the popularity of the Korean Wave. Meanwhile, the government must step up policy efforts such as improving e-commerce export statistics, simplifying logistics and clearance procedures, and building Chinese consumers΄ trust.

- Almost 99% of Chinese consumers with online shopping experience of Korean products expressed their intent to repurchase.

- The Korean Wave, product quality and price, and information provision are factors affecting Chinese consumers’ repurchase intention.

- Given the fact that Chinese cross-border online shopping is at the incipient stage and consumers have expressed a strong

- intent to repurchase, customer conversion should take precedence.

- Statistics on e-commerce exports conducted through Chinese platforms should be provided.

- By simplifying logistics and clearance procedures, the Korean government can help domestic manufacturers strengthen their competitiveness with regards to the needs of Chinese consumers.
