TELESERYE, DRAMA, TELENOVELA: Like Japan, Mexico is a Big Foreign Investor in the Philippines but it doesn't require us to buy its telenovelas...

It was a comedy of errors of sorts these past few days. I came out of the hospital recovered from another illness, only to catch the nastiest Upper Respiratory Tract Infection I've ever had at home with the start of the ber months, complete with high-grade fever & incessant coughing. But in the end, I didn't expect the post announcing my sick leave would attract comments.

The most hilarious was the part where somebody wrote about "the villains getting away " while I was on sick leave. While it was really interesting to write about the shenanigans of the villains when they occured, the truth is I don't really think about them especially now that I've discovered their whole game is just propaganda fiction. I never really took them seriously even before & it was only when I discovered the sabotage on Jadine in 2014 (see Scandals at the sidebar) that I even bothered to check them up. And instead of being impressed, I discovered instead their lack of popularity almost everywhere except in some areas of Mongoloid East Asia. Simply, they are nowhere as popular as their propaganda drivel. The truth is I had great laughs because it was a con game that was very expensive & extensive but after a decade, it is obvious they are not really getting popular, they are fast receding almost everywhere including in the Philippines. They can always invest in more propaganda. If you noticed, there are suddenly minor celebrities, newspaper write-ups & even bloggers suddenly busy working for them, signs they are actively stemming the fatal tide (not to mention the release of films, low-rating teleseryes & even a filmed concert of unknowns, designed to pretend whatever popularity. Perception management, that is). But they have been doing those for the last decade and they have not really prevented their slide from consciousness. Mercenary Pinoys are part of the territory, but in the end, one really can't fight one's natural looks. When people see the sleight-of-hand, the magic is gone.

The big nagging question, of course, is how did they have the gall to sabotage Pinoys who are clearly overshadowing  them in that most important requisite for a star- looks? (See Tales of SABOTAGE at the sidebar)

Part of the recent efforts to stem the tide of irreversible oblivion was something  I thought  was very curious: in a certain local business show that I watched, there was suddenly a disclaimer that the South Koreans are big investors in the country and that they send many tourists to the country. There were other guest foreign businessmen of different nationalities who invested in the Philippines but why was the South Koreans singled out for a disclaimer? Considering the wide inroads of South Korean propaganda in the country, this was not an innocent disclaimer. Were we expected to just grin and bear it just because they have investments? Why, how big are those investments anyway?

Why do the Japanese with far bigger investments don't find the need to sabotage us? I love the films of Takashi Miike but Japanese series are not slammed down our throats. The Mexicans, who have poured the largest foreign direct investment in the last three years, don't require us to buy their telenovelas, the true competition of teleserye worldwide?

Let me do my disclaimers too. All my writeups about the scandals were done (written & uploaded from) on a Korean-made smartphone but  whose screen cracked just today when I dropped it. I wrote this post on the cracked screen. All my articles will soon be done on a different un-Korean brand the new model of which will arrive in the Philippine market soon. One of my three Kazakh friends who I befriended on a trip to Kazakhstan was a Korean ethnic (there are 100,000 Kazakh Koreans, Koreans thrown by the Soviets into Kazakhstan) but he identified more with Russians, and  speak Russian like a native. Sergei himself researched and gave me an honest overview of the Central Asian Asiatic film scene devoid of the nationalistic undertones among Asiatics, like a true Russian intellectual would. He is one of the three who gives me the regular heads-up of the Central Asian scene (the other two are a native Kazakh & a blonde Kazakh Russian).

  1. Nakapagtataka, gaya sa Peru ten years silang pinalabas pero palagi sila kulelat... Pero palabas pa rin. Sa GmanewzTV may mga kdrama pa doon tapos meron pa sa GMA mismo. Magkano ba binabayad ng mga ito para makakapittuko sa isang lugar na di naman sila nagre-rate?

  5. Buti nga di yong bagong Samsung Note 7 ang plano mong bilhin... nasusunog ang battery kaya recalled. Kung di bankrupt Hanjin, mga recalled smartphone ang balita sa mga Koreano... ngayon naman baka may bombahan pa roon. Hahaha

    1. Mga koreano mga yan, panggap sila na fans...style talaga nila na gamitin ang mga sikat na mga Pinoy forums gaya sa Youtube comment section para mag-comment kunyari pero para mabasa ang title ng mga drama nila at ma-publish ng libre ang pangalan ng mga stars nila
