1. [+2,736, -45] I've noticed nowadays that more of our dramas are being produced for the Chinese market which results in weaker plots. If anything, this Hallyu ban might bring quality back to our drama productions...
2. [+2,282, -46] Korea's too conscious of what China wants. The fact that we produce our dramas by catering to their needs is a problem.
3. [+1,546, -43] It's only Hallyu in name... China's the only country where money can be made so we can't really complain and have to do it their way.
4. [+282, -6] Well I hope this is a wake up call to all of the directors who rely on Chinese funding without a care for the actual drama plots
5. [+250, -11] I'm so sick of low quality dramas and variety shows that are clearly being produced for the Chinese market. I think this Hallyu ban will be good. If you don't want to end up like Taiwan, it's better to not be so reliant on Chinese funding.
6. [+180, -5] I hope this is an opportunity for all of the trashy shows that are only being produced for the Chinese market to finally be gotten rid of
7. [+182, -7] Even if they ban Hallyu, the Chinese who are interested in it will still find a way to watch it ㅋㅋ It's only a problem on our end because we can't officially export it so there's no payout
8. [+130, -2] Korea needs to get back to producing quality dramas and shows instead of all these dramas that are poorly made with Chinese funding. Please stop producing all these messes just to get into the Chinese market.
9. [+111, -2] Well I hope Korean producers will finally stop worrying about Chinese funding and get back to producing high quality work then
10. [+99, -2] Great, let's bring MAMA back to Korea too instead of doing it in Hong Kong again
