Does Korean movie effect or corrupt the minds of the young people is the question that can be raised in the present scenario. In a state like Manipur, an average youth watch all sorts of Korean film ranging from love story to action etc. If you go and ask, ‘Do u know rain or bi’? , to any young girl or boy, they would definitely say “Yes”…. I do know him. That is the present context of our state. Many billboards of the Korean actors and actress were put up on the side of the road or in front of the beauty saloon so as to attract young audience. Fashion of the Korean actors and actress were very much like and followed by young audience. It is so obvious to state that many young people would love to have a hair cut of “rain” instead of Shah Rukh khan. As a result, we can say that many youth do follow the trend of Korean film actors and actress.
“I really like their fashion”, said by shishi elangbam.
“Imitating good culture is fine but youth are imitating the fashion as well as trying to be like them, which is bad”.- Nirson thongbam.
Despite of all this, much of the Korean movie involves in “love” and “sacrificing for their love”. The youth are very much involved in their lifestyle but are not aware of the adverse effect that leads to corrupt the young minds.
“The chemistry between the lovers in most of the Korean film is so cute and innocent. In life, there is no larger thing than love. Most of the film are very natural and look realistic”, said by Sonia Chongtham , a student.
Moreover, Apart from imitating their style, words like “sarange” and “aza aza fighting” haunted everywhere in thier sms. The penetration of one culture and language is not a bad thing through films. We came to know much about them like their style and way of living etc through films. But rate of having a girl friend and boyfriend in a very young age is increasing. The psychological behaviour of the youth changes through watching films. They tend to act like them. Much of the students got married at the young age, when they are not even able to stand on their own. The deterioration of the behaviour of today’s youth is indirectly related to watching of Korean film. So, one should be very careful and not excess to it.
