Why do Filipino loves Korean novela?

Friday, May 06, 2011

Included in my daily musing is watching my fave Korean Novela.  I usually bought DVD of something that interest me and even before they were shown on local television, I was able to watch and finish it already.  
I could not remember the exact time or date i have started watching korean tele-novela but if my memory serves me write, this was started when i have watched "Sweet 18" at GMA Channel 7 and that caught my interest and eventually watched many other korean drama.  
Now, that I am having my maternity leave, i don't know if you will believe me but i have watched more than ten korean dramas and even my phone ring tone is "Hyun Bin" That Man (of Secret Garden & Kim Sam Soon).

The fact that they were very entertaining must be the reason why many Filipino like me are addicted watching them, especially if they were already translated in our local language.
