Pengumpulan data dilakukan melalui wawancara mendalam dengan metode purposive sampling kepada tujuh wanita muda yang merupakan pecinta drama Korea sebagai informan yang telah dipilih melalui kriteria tertentu dan latar belakang yang berbeda berdasarkan frekuensi menonton mereka dan pemahaman budaya pop Korea. Hasil penelitian ini mengungkap dua kategorisasi makna kecantikan yang ditemukan di aktris drama Korea, yang terbagi menjadi Outer Beauty dan Inner beauty. Sebagian besar karakteristik yang dikonstruksikan oleh informan kemudian menghasilkan kecantikan stereotipe wanita drama Korea, nilai-nilai budaya dalam inner beauty aktris, dan protagonis sebagai simbol kecantikan di mata penonton.
