The Kathniel loveteam of Daniel Padilla & Kathryn Bernardo who became big with the wide reception of She's Dating The Gangster & Must Be Love were eventually sabotaged in some sites (all the glowing commentaries by their new fans were deleted twice in one site, as described in the SCANDAL series) or their films simply disappeared from some other sites.
But what happens when a Kathniel teleserye would be shown on free TV in a South American country instead? That means, a wider audience will see them. If the pirate sites with their limited audience were bothered with, how would they react to a TV showing with its million viewers?
These dark forces developed a big international propaganda network to maintain a contrived popularity for their wards, be it in the Philippines or Peru. In the Philippines, they were noisy & organized, though in reality they were unpopular as proven not only by the low ratings of their dramas & low acceptance of kpop but they were soundly humiliated despite the big hype when the local programs they financed last year in two local TV stations to celebrate the "popularity" of kpop flopped despite the big-name hosts they hired (the young local singer they picked to be the kpop standard bearer never got off the ground). They flopped because we now know there was simply marginal recognition there despite the decade-long expensive propaganda. But you wouldn't know with the supposed fanaticism of their "fans". Forums were filled with the combative attitude of these "fans" who apparently went to the extent of protesting Japanese anime just so they could dislodge them to release the airtime where they can show the South Korean dramas which aren't rating in other time slots. Never mind that all these dramas were shown in the pirate websites anyway, so why the "fanaticism" to fight to watch them on TV when obviously people prefer something else? Are they actually fake "people power" stooges designed for propaganda pressure tactics?
Apparently that combative "fanaticism" to exclude another Asian just so they can have their way is part of their playbook even in other countries. It's happening now in Peru & they are not "victimizing" on the Japanese this time but the Pinoys.
When the first Pinoy teleserye Puentes de Amor was shown in Peru, there was a comment by a "fan" in a Forosperu forum which was very curious. The "fan" later turned out to mostly write about Kpop in that forum.
The Filipinos are full drama, but I want that Panamericana should focus more in Korean dramas
Now, what does the showing of a Pinoy teleserye got to do with the South Korean dramas being shown in Peru? True, the South Korean dramas have low ratings in Peru, but what does that got to do with a Pinoy teleserye which just emerged into the picture? Is the arrival of another Asian a threat to the current Asian who is not rating anyway in the first place? The Pinoy drama had a different time slot, and the Asian dramas are in the same TV station so they are not competitors.
Then about a week ago, the showing of the Kathniel starrer "La Promesa", only the second Pinoy teleserye in Peru, was announced & the promo ad was featured everyday by the Panamericana Facebook account. Suddenly things got curiouser, because the "fanatics" suddenly came out with more force.
In the first showing of the ad:
In the second appearance of the promo ad:
The common theme: they are vociferous in saying they prefer the kdramas. Though they have different time slots.
One said the Philipine teleseryes are also good, why not give them a chance. The "fanatic" whose name appeared everyday in the comments stony replied No.
So, why are these trolls so against Pinoy teleseryes when they have different timeslots? Why didn't they use their "fanaticism" to get ratings for their own instead? Of course, fake fanaticism is really predictable, & in the end laughable. Their modus operandi has been used many times before, it is simply hackneyed (gasgas na). Their game is up.
My Peruvian friend said the Pinoys are starting a buzz, people were commenting they were Asians who look good, & the bad guys are threatened not only because of their perennial low ratings.
I told him, those are just some of the reasons that they feel threatened. There's a bigger one: though badly sabotaged, Kathniel is coming to Peru.
SABOTAGE OF PINOY TELESERYES IN PERU: Now we know why they are bitter & cruel (as if they weren't used to the lowest ratings. VERY "POPULAR KUNWARI" INDEED!!!)
