It's no surprise that Pinoys love all things Korean—from the early 2000s when K-dramas were only available on local TV (or CDs!), until now that we can watch them anytime and anywhere. Although some fangirling habits have changed, we can all agree that Korean culture has been a part of our daily lives for years.
According to Twitter, Asian countries are not the only ones who can't get enough of K-content. The Hallyu wave has also seen significant growth of interest in North America, Europe, and South America, thanks to social media and various streaming platforms.
