A survey says a large percentage of Southeast Asia's population has seen a South Korean TV drama.

The Korea Foundation for Asian Culture Exchange on Thursday said its poll found some 60 percent of Singaporeans have seen a Korean drama, followed by 44 percent of Malaysians and 40 percent of Thais.

Surveying some 1,500 people in the three countries, the study showed "Dae Jang Geum" (Jewel in the Palace) and "Winter Sonata" were the most popular in Singapore and Malaysia and "Full House" and "Autumn Fairy Tale" in Thailand.
