Introduction I.1. Background According to CommonWealth Magazine, one of the greatest inventions in the 20th century is television, and its appearance in every family has changed our traditional way of life since decades ago. The sight of a family surrounding around a table and eating dinner is less and less seen. Instead, we eat dinner and watch dramas in front of our TV sets at the same time. This style has been showing up in our everyday life. Along with the large network of cable television, TV stations introduce many foreign programs, including the dramas from Korea, Japan and America, among which Korean dramas are one of the most popular programs in Taiwan, even in Asia. We call this trend Korean Wave. Korean Wave is a phenomenon which refers to a worldwide popularity boom in Korean cultural exports. Korean Wave stands for Korean dramas and movies, combined with a mixture of K-pop music and dance, clothing, foods, customs, sightseeing, cosmetics and Korean language. Without a doubt, Korean Wave has formed an immense fashionable power in the world. According to The AJU Business (2012), everyone knows that Korean Wave consists of various elements, and the impact of Korean dramas is the most obvious. There are two dramas playing significant roles in the history of Korean dramas. One is Jewel in the Palace. According to Wikipedia, this drama made the record of average ratings of fifty percent; moreover, there were more than ninety countries in the world airing this drama. The other is You Who Came From the Stars, and this drama not only created the clicks of two billion on the Net, but also drew over six hundred forty thousand Taiwanese tourists to go to Korea in 2014, according to Cheng Yi Shou (), President of Korea Tourism Organization, Taipei Office. Therefore, we can know that Korean dramas are closely related to our life, whether their clothing, foods or cultures. I.2. Motivation Over the past several years, Korean dramas have become a synonym for the Korean cultural industry as well as a major source of momentum for the Korean economy. Similarly, this whirlwind has also swept throughout Taiwan, and the The Effects of Korean Dramas on the Students 2 commodities appearing in the dramas usually cause the large-scale fanatic purchase. On the other hand, we find that after Korean dramas are introduced into Taiwan, they deeply affect many aspects in Taiwan such as cultures, foods, clothing, values of life, traveling, dramas, songs, etc. From the above-mentioned, we can see that Korean dramas are not only the programs, but also the impacts on our life. With this in mind and as fans of Korean dramas, our project is to find out the effects of Korean dramas on the students in National Douliou Vocational High School of Home Economics Commerce (TLHC). I.3. Research Questions To understand the effects of Korean dramas, three questions are formulated as followed. 1. Have you ever watched any Korean dramas? 2. Do you think watching Korean dramas affects your schoolwork? 3. What will you do and buy after watching Korean dramas? II. Methods II.1. Participants Five hundred students in National Douliou Vocational High School of Home Economics Commerce participated in our study. There were about ten to twenty students from each class participating in this questionnaire. We used these students as subjects because we thought Korean dramas would have some effects on them. We hope we can get some useful and extra information from this questionnaire. II.2. Questionnaire The questionnaire included ten questions. Question number two, five, six, eight and nine are all multiple-choices questions. Each student can choose at least two options. III.

And the two main reasons why these students would like to watch Korean dramas are the content and the cast. As figure 3 shows, sixty-two percent of students averagely spend one hour watching Korean dramas in one day. Therefore, it can prove that Korean dramas have become a fad among most students in our school. From the figure 4, it tells us that the reason why the rest of students don't watch Korean dramas. That is because they think Korean dramas do not attract them. 6% 5% 1% 93% 0%20%40%60%80%100%Content Cast In favor ofTaiwanesedramasNo interestFigure 4 Why don't you watch Korean dramas?

Conclusion In our survey, most students in National Douliou Vocational High School of Home Economics Commerce have watched Korean dramas. There are two main effects of Korean dramas on the students. One is the students academic performances. The other is what the students do and buy after they watch Korean dramas. As the research illustrates, most students dont stay up watching Korean dramas. Therefore, we can learn that Korean dramas dont pose a negative effect on students. On the other hand, after watching Korean dramas, most teenagers become Korean maniacs and actively participate in many activities, but they arent willing to spend their money buying products related to Korean dramas. From our survey we can conclude that Korean dramas are exactly popular with the students in our school, but watching Korean dramas doesnt bring them negative effects, no matter on their schoolwork or in their everyday lives.
