The purpose of this thesis is to examine the influences of Korean television programs on Myanmar culture. In this survey, a descriptive method was used and primary data was collected through online questionnaire in Yangon region area. A total of 267 respondents participated in this survey. Findings of this survey data proves that Myanmar viewers’ perception on Korean contents (e.g., food, music, language, custom, cosmetics and gestures) are strongly related to their viewership pattern of Korean series. Behaviors and attitudes such as imitating and adopting to imitate Korean culture are also in strong relation with watching times. The majority of the respondents are females in this survey and it is found that the influence of Korean series on them are huge.
