The Korean-American market segment is distinct, economically powerful, and under-examined. This study compared perceived information utility of six direct-to-consumer advertising (DTCA) media for prescription drugs among Korean-Americans and Non-Hispanic White Americans. Results indicate that drug-brand Web sites were most useful for this segment, followed by television. Banner, pop-up, and e-mail advertisements were least useful. Korean-Americans perceived newspapers, television, and the Internet significantly more useful DTCA media than Non-Hispanic Whites.
