[The Chosun Ilbo, May 6 2008] Korean Hit Dramas Shown in Laos

Interest in Korea started in Laos with the launching of three Korean hit drama series last November as part of the Korea Broadcasting Commission's project to increase Korean presence in the region.

The shows that aired are two historic TV dramas, "Hwang Jini", which tells the true story of a legendary Korean entertainer during the Chosun Dynasty, and "Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the Palace)", which is a fictional twist on the first female royal physician of the Chosun Dynasty. The last one is a modern story, "Stairway to Heaven", with a plot that resembles the old Cinderella tale.
