In a more specific level, youth of today are undeniably more concerned with

foreign music,movies and television series. And when the word ‘addict’ is used to

describe the Filipinos youngsters, it really defines how they are very enthusiastic with

South Korean music and dramas. The youth spends a lot of time in watching their

idols online, stalking their social media accounts, attending events, purchasing

merchandise, and attending concerts ‘fangirling’, in one word. No matter how it

costs, even if it is worth more than their school allowance, Filipino K-pop and K-

drama fans see to it that they will be able to put into action their label of being die-

hard fans. Sometimes, they even sacrifice more important things just to prioritize

watching more episodes of South Korean dramas. For example, a student posted

how she is supposed to study for the examinations but is watching K-drama at the

time she updated her status (Dow, 2014).


Most of the youth fantasize foreign movies, dramas and television programs.

Filipino youth can be called an “addict” because on how they idolize and fantasize

Korean Dramas. They almost spend a lot of time and energy fantasizing to their

Korean idols in Korean Dramas. They create accounts on social media to stalk and

subscribe to their favourite channels and genre of their idols. Korean dramas and

Korean pop music are a trend in today’s society. Most of the Filipino fans spend a lot

of money for the concerts and dramas of their idols although they are sort of

allowance or the concert tickets are more than the amount of their allowance in
school. Most importantly they spend their time watching Korean Dramas rather than

doing some important things. (Dow,2014; Villnueva et al.,2017)
