    empowerment/blessing

    Please help me correct the following paragraph. Thanks!

    Besides strong promotions and marketing the shooting attractions, Korean soap operas also often highlight its own technology products in the play, like LG household appliances, Samsung's mobile phones and cameras, and Hyundai motors, etc. In the play, under the stars’ empowerment/blessing, it not only increases the visibility of its high-tech products also indirectly enhances the audience favorability of products.

    Try:

    Korean soap operas often highlight its Korean products such as LG household appliances, Samsung's mobile phones and cameras, and Hyundai cars, etc.


    (The rest of it is gobbledegook to me.)

    Do you mean 'increases the opportunities for its high-tech products being seen by people'?

    Re: empowerment/blessing

    I rewrote these sentences as following:

    Besides strong promotions and marketing the shooting attractions, Korean soap operas often highlight Korean products such as LG household appliances, Samsung's mobile phones and cameras, and Hyundai cars, etc. In the play, under the stars’ advertisement, it not only increases the opportunities for its high-tech products being seen by people but also enhances the audience's favourable opinions on the products.

    Re: empowerment/blessing

    What you are talking about is called product placement. It's a type of marketing in which the product is shown during the program to subtly draw the audience's attention to that product. Unfortunately, I do not know what you mean by marketing the shooting attractions. (Thanks, Matthew.) Perhaps:

    Besides regular commercials, Korean soap operas often highlight Korean products such as LG household appliances, Samsung's mobile phones and cameras, and Hyundai cars, etc. during the program. That increases the visibility of Korea's high-tech products and increases the audience's favorability of those same products.

    I guess it means something like 'advertising the places where the Korean dramas were shot and which have become tourist attractions'.

    Thanks for giving me some ideas. (BTW, audience's favorability should probably be audience favorability. (But what do I know? ))
