Aceh province has Qanun (legislation similar to local laws) regulating the conduct of government to social life of Aceh people. Then, it is the task of Wilayatul hisbah or shari’a police to monitor the implementation of Islamic law in Aceh. Sharia-based rules cover the field of Aqeedah, shar'iah, and morals that have lasted for a few years now also affect people's behavior when interacting and being in public space. The research aimed to find out how the teenagers who love Korean dramas read the messages conveyed through the media that was so popular some time ago, the Korean drama. In addition, this research also sought the information on how the local wisdoms shape the pattern of how adolescents read the media. The preliminary research has found that the local wisdom values that refer to religion become filter for the adolescents in receiving the information presented. Entanglement created by sharia rules that is ingrained in adolescents as well as control from the environment make the late adolescents not fully adopt the attitude and behaviour from Korean Dramas eventhough they love what are offered by the media.
