    I am guessing that "global crazy" is a phrase that has recently become popular. (As you have probably noticed, I made no corrections in the first sentence (because it needs none).)

    Re: global crazy

    I think it has become a "global craze​".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: global crazy

    I combined these sentences to form a paragraph as written. Is it adequate to put the adverb 'Naturally' before the sentence 'K-pop has....'?

    This surge of Korean cultural popularity has been called “Hallyu.” It means Korean wave and means that Korean TV, film and music has become a global craze. Naturally, K-pop has taken my school by storm. Watching Korean soap operas has become a national activity, and discussing the story and screenplay of the soap operas is a common topic of conversation among students and teachers.

    Yes.

    This surge of Korean cultural popularity has been called “Hallyu.” It means Korean wave, and refers to the widespread popularity of Korean television, cinema and music, which has become a global craze. Naturally, K-pop has taken my school by storm. Watching Korean soap operas has become a national pastime, and discussing the story and screenplay of the soap operas is a common topic of conversation among students and teachers.

    You might want to change the title of the thread.

    You need to highlight "Korean wave" (for example, by italicizing it), because it is a phrase you want to bring the reader's attention to. I would not use "naturally" in the second sentence, because it suggests that it is something you would expect to happen. (Why?) Finally, I would not change film to cinema unless you wanted it to look British. (I agree that the phrase should be global craze, although I rather like global crazy. )
