The Pinoy VK pages are propaganda fronts using the captive Russian fans (mostly Mongoloid minorities) as captive market for their propaganda. But the memberships of these VK groups were made irrelevant by the outside groups, like the Kazakh-established pages, which had far more readers than them. It is turning out the South Korean Hallyu is a big mirage created by a big propaganda structure in many parts of the world and it is not quite impressive outside that propaganda noise. It is losing steam.
The sabotage is expected to continue because they have done all the Plastic Surgery, they are stuck with the faces they have now. (At least, this is the most hilarious sabotage!)
If you noticed, the scandals in Russia just created the first direct public connection to South Korean propaganda).

As we go deeper into our little investigation, it is becoming more & more apparent that the pirate Asiatic film-loving community doesn't involve only cheapskate individuals out to scrimpt on anything just to avoid shelling out money for their entertainment. Bigger forces which you won't expect involved in this supposedly "illegal" activity are actually behind the bigger sites.
Surprisingly, the pirate Asiatic film-loving community in the Post-Soviet space is the most tenacious. They got the films that the fans in the Spanish & Portuguese-speaking parts were only clamoring like "Talk Back & You're Dead", "She's Dating The Gangster" & more. No deletions of rave reviews were noted though the same forces were noted to be at work, same modus operandi (e.g. forming fan clubs of Pinoy teen idols to capture a ready audience for kpop promotions, etc.). Majority of the fans are the Mongoloid minorities scattered mostly in the Russian Far East (included are large ethnic Korean population scattered in the former USSR) & Kazakhstan (where the Kazakhs are the majority), but like the Philippines, there is a large intermixing of ethnicities here so, as expected, the empathy was immediate. If you add the total memberships of fan clubs that arose with the showing of the teleserye Forevermore in Kazakhstan last April 27, they have already exceeded the total membership of the biggest online pirate sites serving the Post-Soviet space (However, "Forevermore" is still a fresh event, there was not much insecurity yet among the villains in Russia because of the large ethnic Korean population around Vladivostok up to the boundary with North Korea, and many pockets in the Post-Soviet space because many ethnic Koreans were forcibly scattered by the Soviet authorities around the former USSR, numbering about 500,000 today. Kim Il-Sung, the North Korean founder, was reported to be a Soviet Korean military officer before he was sent by the Soviet Communists across the border. The seeming lack of insecurity may have contributed to the uneventful passage here of the Pinoy teens- so far...).(UPDATE: July 15, 2015, well, we have just confirmed they are very insecure here..."Forevermore" is even a bigger threat than "Diary Ng Panget" in the Post-Soviet space because it was shown on national Kazakh TV while DNP was just shown in the pirate websites which have limited viewership).
It so happened that the few Filipino films released were the top Pinoy films for 2014 and were released one after the other in THE SAME MONTH in the biggest pirate site in Russia, therefore it's easy to assess the impact and popularity of the films. Arranged according to DATE OF RELEASE on the webpage (the lower, the earlier was the release), but all were released on October, 2014, the intervals were just a matter of days.

No doubt about it, the Pinoy teen stars are the real draws.
