Default When Does Radio Korea Start?

And what Channel # does it get? Will it play only pop and traditional Korean tunes or an eclectic mix?

I think it will make the next lineup change, rumored to happen in September.

oh my goodness, i never heard about this. i wander what type of music is going to be played on that channel.

Does anybody know if its going to be a talk channel or a music channel?

If it's a music channel, anyone know if it will just be korean music or Asian music?

It would be cool to get an Asian music channel.

It should be an all Korean channel for music from what I understand. Next year look for a Chinese channel to be added.

I worked in China for several months, and in that time I got to visit some of their dance clubs and realized that the music they like is very much like popular music and dance here. Only the words have changed. I liked the music so much even though I couldn't understand the words that I went out to walmart (yes walmart) and purchased some VCD's to see and hear some tunes The music isn't as anoying as the spoken word. Don't know about Korean.

I know Korean...."Hyundai". See?
I'll give it a try (as I do all channels) and you never know but I keep thinking that they could use this bandwidth more efficiently. I just can't believe there's a cry for Korean music.

Well on channel 144 this morning on the display it said to change your preset to 143 for liberal talk ...

then said that Radio Korea debuts on Monday on 144

I just checked 144 again & it is still scrolling that message

At least we now know it getting a "low-bandwidth" channel, and not a"full-bandwidth" one.

I'm a little concerned that they're giving it the natural home for a "progressive" channel...

I think the Korean and Chinese channels is going to be TALK/NEWS and not MUSIC so expect a "Radio Disney" type of compression.

I'm pretty sure that it will change in the shuffle.

It's 6:37 EST and there is a heckuva song playing on there right now. I think it is called "Oowee Ingwee Sing Wing Ya". I'll have to google it. :\


Ha....now a Korean country song. I think this one is called "Gee Oo Pomodo Eganya"

They really need to get the song info on there.

We thought BBC1 was great. RAdio Korea is the shit.

Yeah, this is great . I can't understand a word they're saying. I never took Korean in high school. Maybe I got them at a bad time when there's no music playing but I just don't get it.... You'd think they'd go with something in ENGLISH first like radio Australia or radio Ireland. Frikin' put radio Canada on there. I can't wait to impress all my friends with Radio Korea!! I'll be the envy of the radio world!! [sarcasm_off]
