—In this paper, we propose a method for extracting topics we were interested in over the course of the past 18 months from a closed-caption TV corpus. Each TV program is assigned one of the following genres: drama, informational or tabloid style program, music, movie, culture, news, variety, welfare, and sport. We focus on dramas and informational/tabloid style programs in this paper. As the results, we extracted some words or bigrams that formed part of a signature phrase of a heroine and the name of a hero in a popular drama.
