Abstract
This study is motivated by curiosity about the term 'pelakor' which is developing in Indonesia. Previously, the term affair and another desirable woman are commonly known, but now the term ‘pelakor’ is attached to the women who seize men from their female partners. One of the agents who participate in socializing a term that develops in society is media. This study seeks to explain how the power of television constructs the term 'pelakor' by analyzing a soap opera program entitled 'Orang Ketiga' that airs on SCTV. This study is looking for a discourse in television soap opera that is believed to contribute to the socialization of the word 'pelakor'. This study uses a qualitative method with Sara Mills's Critical Discourse Analysis approach, which sees that television can be a social practice that shapes the social world. This study is important because it has never been conducted before and contains novelty. The result of this research indicates that the soap opera 'Orang Ketiga' is one of the agents that puts the discourse of the word ‘pelakor’ into a regulated statement.The word ‘pelakor’ becomes a discourse that is believed by the community as a word that is pinned to the female usurper. The 'contested' man is placed in a neutral position. The position of the subject is in the soap opera script writer and also the audiences. While the position of the object is in the main actor, who plays the ‘pelakor’.
