RE: BANNING KOREAN CONTENT

Tulad ng maraming Caviteño, ako mismo ay fan ng KPop at KDramas. I think they strike a chord in the Filipino heart.

At the height of the pandemic when most of us were locked in our homes, KDramas and KPop gave many Filipinos hope and inspiration.

Koreans also make the top tourist arrivals in the Philippines. They love our country while we love them for their world-class entertainment.

There are no boundaries in pop culture.

Learn and take inspiration from what the Koreans have achieved. Kaya natin yan.
