I was so surprised that my international friends know Korean dramas and songs more than me. Even you can find Korean dramas in on hulu.com. My friends sent me a YouTube Korean drama link and asked about songs in the show. I haven’t watched Korean drama an year, so I searched it though Korean website and let him know. I didn’t pay attention to Korean pop music or drama much, but now I realized that they represent Korean culture. One of my friends said that she tried Kimchi, fermented Korean dish because she saw in a soap opera. Influence through entertainments is interesting. Watching “Friends” was fun, and it helped me learn English and American culture. Fun is one of the motivation triggers.
What was your trigger that made you interested in other cultures?
