Korean Dramas (K-Dramas) have taken the hearts of Filipinos, really. There is a plethora of K-Dramas on Netflix, which helps many of us get through the boredom while stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, our love for K-Dramas has penetrated the academic world. The University of the Philippines (UP) is offering an elective called “BC 196: Analysis of K-Drama.”
