  • [2005-03-10]
  • The popular KBS drama `Autumn Fairy Tale,` starring Song Hye-gyo and Song Seung-heon, has set off the `hallyu` wave in Sakhalin, Russia, as well. Sakhalin Korean TV (KTV) ran the Russian-subtitled drama from August to December last year.

    "Russian-Koreans of all three generations residing in Sakhalin watched this drama together," said Kim Chun-ja, director of Sakhalin KTV. She also added that an increasing number of Russian-Koreans want to visit Korea after watching `Autumn Fairy Tale.` This miniseries captivated the hearts of Sakhalin viewers to an extent that it became the prime topic of conversation among people.

    Currently, KTV is running `Ijema,` starring Choi Su-jong, and a number of other Korean programs such as the KBS Open Concert.

    "Many viewers are asking us to show `Winter Sonata,` so we plan to request KBS to help us put this drama on the air as well,` said Kim.
