ABSTRACT

This study explores effects of retrospective drama on alleviation of depression. Using the popular TV drama, ‘Reply 1988’ as a research drama, interrelationships among conceptual constructs are examined. As results, it is found that empathy influenced pleasure and arousal of drama viewers. For the roles of affective variables, pleasure influenced psychological comfort, and arousal leads to anti-depression. Direct relationship between arousal and depression is also found. It means that arousal increased the level of depression. These results could provide academic implications regarding antecedents of depression, and also managerial implications can be found in terms of retrospective drama production.
