This study defined the scope and type of addiction and examined the power addiction, which is a type of relationship addiction. This theme can be found from Richard III, the Duke of Gloucester, a power-addicted figure in Shakespeare's play, Richard III, and a main character named Frank Joseph Underwood, who had drawn popularity in the House of Cards, a Netflix original drama series. The two figures were standardized to show the general form of power poisoning. Absolute evil Richard III, who get bogged down into a quagmire of power indulgence more and more while exploiting anxiety of society and people and President Underwood, who exploits and protects the pinnacle of power through the skillful manipulation of scheme and estrangement are standard figures of power addiction. This phenomenon of power addiction appears not only in literary works or drama but also in a modern society. It can be a phenomenon of power addiction to captivate people with conspiracy numbers and hoaxes, and to cloud people's rational judgments with fake news. Pursuing power in a way to unite people in social unrest into the groups or relationships that they belong to. After all, power addiction will form common actions of those who devote to power, but in the case of false it is something like conspiracy, hypocrisy, hoaxes, number of mercy, murder and so on.
