Senator Robin Padilla was confused as to why Filipinos prefer to watch K-Dramas than Filipino made movies. Padilla made the remarks during the hearing on the 2023 budget of the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP).
In an article posted by Rappler, Padilla said he is concerned over the continued decline of Filipino patronage of Pilipino movies.
Padilla added that Filipino prefers watching online and K-Dramas.
“Kami po ay naguguluhan dahil kapag tumitingin naman kami sa salamin…mas pogi naman kami sa mga tiga-South Korea. Wala naman inayos sa amin, kasi itong ilong ko kahit suntukin nang ilang beses, walang inayos dito.” said the Senator.
“Bakit po mas gustong panoorin ng ating mga kababayan ang gawa ng mga Koreano kaysa sa gawa natin?” Padilla added.
FDCP Chair Tirso Cruz III agreed with the observation of Senator Padilla and added that he believes Filipino artists are far better than Korean actors and actresses.
