"Ma-Anhing 'Kag Sayo" (You'll soon depart from the face of this earth). This was my friend's pun about the Korean way of greeting (an yung hoseyo).
It used to be that I hated Korean novelas. They are difficult to read and understand. What with all the subtitles and all the ways they've been custom-fit to be understood by Filipino viewers.

According to a local research, children in the younger years (say like 4 years old and below) who are frequently exposed to TV at such ages are likely to develop speech problems. I don't know whether this research is conclusive and comprehensive for this matter but I do agree that exposing oneself to the tube especially when one has not formed judgment faculties in the brain (being immature and young with a sponge-like brain) may hold true. The brain is such a complex organ that anything (as in
