So we return to Peru...
In many articles, we described how the Pinoy teen stars have been happily resurgent in many parts of the world... only to be sabotaged by the now familiar villains. We look again at the Peruvian end where we described in previous articles the usual modus operandi of some alleged Korean drama "fans" in apparently sabotaging the showing of the Pinoy teleserye La Promesa. While the successful time-slot of the first Pinoy teleserye to be shown in Peru, Puentes de Amor, was taken over by another Korean drama, it turned out there was another reason why the showing of La Promesa was postponed. Apparently the dubbing of the Pinoy teleserye was not finished on time.
Nevertheless, it came to our attention that the same sabotage modus operandi was continuing (see pic below). No need to react though. It's obvious, they are now only making themselves ridiculous, nobody pays them much attention there anyway. For nearly a decade, the Korean dramas have been shown there but they consistently languished with 1-2% percent viewership at the bottom. Still, they were tenacious in clinging there despite the humiliation of being at the floor of the ratings of all the telenovelas coming from Mexico, Turkey, Colombia and the Philippines (all the while their propaganda machine was noisy about their alleged popularity). But it's good they hang on there for many humiliating years more because they were finally lifted when Puentes de Amor arrived and they rode its coattails in the ratings. One result of the success of Puentes de Amor was the South Korean drama which was shown before it was noticed to be there after all.

The Pinoys have been actually a boon to the South Koreans. That reminds us of what is happening in the Russian VK. With the popularity of the Pinoy stars after the success of Forevermore, certain fanpages of Pinoy stars were actually established by the same propaganda people of the South Korean stars, capturing the audience of the Pinoys, which otherwise didn't pay much attention to them, as ready objects of their propaganda.
Of course, that is only one of the uses of the Pinoys. Many fanpages of Pinoy stars have been established in the VK but most of them mysteriously disappeared. But some just as mysteriously reappeared in another form? That's for another post, as part of our series investigating the mysteries.
