Yeah, well, you’re not alone brother (or sister), and there’s probably a phobia named after that. Anyway, let me give you a few recommendations on what you might want to watch on TV in your spare time.
One of the Korean shows that has become extremely popular in the Philippines, and it’s all thanks to the one of the cutest TV stars, Lee Min Ho, who now has a huge fan base there. The series is pretty much a Korean version of “Gossip Girl”, featuring a bunch of rich high school students and their love lives.
