Two hundred and fourteen Chinese audiences who selected using convenience sampling have participated in this survey research.

Chinese audience‘s different television viewing motives in respect to relaxation, companionship, habit, pass time, entertainment, social interaction, information, arousal, and escape, for Korean television series were significant predictors of their television addiction behavior in respect to tolerance, withdrawal, unintended use, cutting down, time spent, displacement of other activities, and Continued use. The findings suggested that television viewing motives are accountable for 65.4% of their addiction behavior to Korean TV series. Most, importantly, Chinese viewers’ motives for relaxation, companionship, habit, information, arousal, and escape were positive predictors of their addiction behavior. However, motives for pass time, entertainment, and social interaction were negative predictors of their addiction behavior. The study suggested that Chinese viewers watched Korean TV series because they wanted to escape from reality, to seek information, and to stick to their habits, ranking as the top 3 motives for viewing Korean TV series. While other motives were not significant predictors of their addiction behavior.
