Additionally, since becoming interested in K-pop culture, they have developed a taste for Korean fashion, food, music, and movies. The purpose of this study is to explore (1) how people first became interested in K-pop and developed a liking for it, (2) changes in their preferences for fashion, food, music, and movies (dramas), and (3) the positive and negative impacts of liking K-pop. The research method used in this study is qualitative with a descriptive approach. The results of the study indicate that the informants became interested in K-pop through social media, particularly Facebook.
