Soap operas were a televised form of entertainment from Earth, focusing on the exploration of Human relationships.

In 2373 when the USS Voyager was sent back in time to Earth, 1996, Kes and Neelix were assigned to monitor Earth communication broadcasts, including television, and got caught up in one particular soap opera. In that soap opera, one of the characters, Blaine, realized that the son he had with Jessica was actually fathered by his twin brother Jack. He felt distressed by the revelation, leading Jessica to stress that she loved him. (VOY: "Future's End")

Many Star Trek actors and actresses have appeared on real-life soap operas, such as John de Lancie, Barry Jenner, Stephen Mines, Jonathan Farwell, and Peter Parros.
Their popularity may have died out by the 2040s, along television in general. Harry Kim certainly didn't appear familiar with the concept.
