A quick look at the world today, everything started to be changed. The world is getting smaller because of the globalization and the emergence of modern technology. Whenever we like it or not the phenomenon of globalization means a lot to us, it highly takes place and influences in our daily life that we never ever noticed how impactful of this. In my own words although we are living in the different nation across the world, globalization is all about linked every one of us to interact, integrate, share information, recognize and practice together. It also helps all the peoples around the world keep in touch easily.
By looking at what we have today, although there are rise of new media but the old media such as television are still one of the important medium that greatest influence all of us. (Tay & Turner, 2008) It is not only informing us about how the world should be and what’s happening around the world, but it also providing a wide range of films, dramas, and variety shows. (Mitu, 2011) Television also indented to entertainment the audience as well.
In addition, televisions today are no longer just providing the local television program to the audience. However, what we watched in the television today are mostly import the content program from others countries. For example, we able to watch Korean dramas, Live sports competition and others television program easily as long as we owned a television at home. Well, based on this it clearly shows that globalization makes all of us listening to the same music, watching the same dramas and movie no matter where we live. Every one of us has the same behavior pattern because of the same content and what we explored on the media. This is why television can be the powerful medium that helps spreading the different culture that influences us.
