AbstractIn this paper we describe and analyze a TV drama web-based fangroup forum which has been initiated by a Hong Kong secondary school student. The website organizational structure and activities are analyzed and discussed in terms of what seems to be transpiring in this entirely voluntarily co-constructed social space. We shall then analyse these on-line activities in terms of the kind of social imaginary (Taylor 2002) that seems to be emerging in this virtual space. Concluding the paper we shall discuss implications for our understanding of some ‘eu-topian’ possibilities of TV drama consumption practices and youth digital cultures despite the negative dominant public and academic discourses on youth cultures in Hong Kong.
