Understanding K-Drama: Why Mobile Phones Are So Important

News via kdramastars.com

There are a few reasons that cell phones are everywhere in k-dramas. A 2013 International Telecommunications Union study found that more than 100 percent of all South Koreans have cell phones, while only 50 percent of Americans did. That means many South Koreans have more than one phone. That same year another study found that among South Koreans, ages 6 to 19, at least 65 percent had smartphones.

Why the prevalence of phones? South Korea is home to electronics giant Samsung Electronics, one of the world"s largest smartphone makers. And phone manufacturers undoubtedly pay to place their products in dramas.

Why do k-drama characters type so fast? The simplicity of the Korean language and the way the symbols are set up on the keyboards of Korean cell phones make it easier to type really fast.
