Arirang TV

Founded in 1996, Arirang TV airs news, cultural programs,
educational shows, documentaries and more 24 hours a day, in more than
188 countries. As Korea's premier English-language channel, Arirang's
mission is to present an accurate view of Korea to the world through
unbiased news reports and programs featuring a diversity of
perspectives. Viewers with little knowledge about Korea or with an
outdated impression of the country can gauge the pulse of the
fast-changing nation through Arirang.
Some of the network's most popular and longest-running shows include
"Arirang News," "Showbiz Extra," "Pops in Seoul" and "Heart to Heart."
"Arirang News" is one of many current affairs shows that provide
up-to-the-minute, objective and in-depth coverage of domestic and
international news. Through such programs as "Diplomacy Lounge" and the
talk show "Heart to Heart," viewers can gain diverse insights and
perspectives on Korea, glimpsing the country through the eyes of
foreign diplomats, visiting international newsmakers and more. Though
government affiliated, Arirang retains independent programming rights
and presents a timely and accurate portrait of Korea.
Arirang also airs programs about Asia and the world, offering
viewers in Korea and abroad culturally diverse content. Whether it's
through a culinary show about global cuisines or a commercial made in
conjunction with UNICEF to combat world hunger, Arirang serves as an
international channel that bridges cultures.
Operated by The Korea International Broadcasting Foundation, Arirang
broadcasts three channels: Arirang World, Arirang Korea and Arirang
Arab. The network offers subtitles in languages including Arabic,
Chinese and Spanish. Starting on March 3, 2008 Arirang TV adding three
more languages namely Russian, Vietnamese and Bahasa Indonesia. It is
free-to-air in much of Europe, North America, Asia (excluding Korea),
Australia and the Pacific region, and provided via Astra 1E, Hotbird 3,
Intelsat (PAS) 2, 8, 9 and 10 and Arabic feed in Asiasat 3s and Badr4.

Arirang TV is viewed by many observers as very 'biased and
unrealistic' in its coverage of South Korea, many of their programs
allegedly showing characteristics of propaganda, similar to China's CCTV-9. It has also been known to censor negative views of South Korea [1] [2].
Arirang TV will cease airing in the Philippines due to poor ratings, but no exact date was mentioned. [3]

MBC Headquarters(Building), Yeouido, Seoul, South Korea

The origin of MBC was Busan Munhwa Bangsong (Busan Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation; Busan MBC), the first private broadcasting corporation,established in 1959, Busan, South Korea. Busan MBC started its service with 1 kW AM radio and renowned for broadcasting the first CM Song in South Korea. Busan MBC launched MBC (in Seoul) in 1961, with a small AM radio broadcaster (Today, the best heavy stockholder of Busan MBC is MBC (in Seoul)). It began television broadcasting on August 8, 1969 and FM radio broadcasts in 1971.
Some crowds outraged by the official media's distorted coverage of the progressing Gwangju massacre stormed MBC's building in Gwangju on the night of May 20, 1980. Unable to operate the broadcasting equipment, they set it afire. Partly to address such concerns in light of the country's 1987 democratic reforms, the National Assembly established the Foundation for Broadcast Culture on December 26, 1988, to insulate MBC from political influence.
Since then, the network has promoted its independence and declared its mission to be one of public service and the promotion of Korean culture. Since 1997 it has refused to broadcast music with all-English language lyrics. In 2001 it proclaimed its support for President Kim Dae-jung's New Year's Day call for reform of the mass media, which was chiefly aimed at the national daily newspapers.
Also in 2001, MBC launched satellite television and cable television broadcasting. As part of this expansion it created MBC America, a subsidiary based in Los Angeles, California, USA to distribute its programming throughout The Americas.
On August 1, 2008, MBC America launched MBC-D, a television service carried on the digital subchannels of KSCI-TV, KTSF-TV, and WMBC-TV. The service will be launched in Atlanta, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. by the end of the year. [1][2]


In the summer of 2005, MBC faced harsh criticism when two teenage male performers, Shin and Oh (members of the Korean punk rock band Couch) were caught dropping their pants and exposing their genitals on the television live music program Music Camp[3]. Because of South Korea's conservative culture, there were harsh criticisms aimed at the company from government officials and the general public (including some strong reactions from netizens). Although the short-term fallout from this scandal resulted in the program being cancelled, with its producers reprimanded[4] and its two MCs (MC Mong and Shinji from popular dance group Koyote) fired, there were no lasting effects, as its replacement program Music Core is still very similar to its predecessor. In addition, further criticism was levelled against MBC later that year when their investigative journalism show PD Su-cheop (Producer's Notebook) discovered the scientific fraud committed by geneticist Hwang Woo-Suk. Although the information was factual and instrumental in uncovering Hwang's misdeeds, the strong support for Hwang led most companies to pull their advertising out of the show[5], and it was greatly condemned as being too harsh.


iMBC is MBC's official website, providing users with various information on current and past programs and allowing users to download or stream programs to watch.
Established March 2000 as the internet subsidiary of MBC, iMBC uses the digital contents of MBC to provide various contents to internet, mobile and ISP users and foreign businesses. iMBC also plans projects for creating, developing, and circulating new contents.
The site offers free and paid VOD services for users to view various programs online. While the public service programs, News, Radio, and programs currently on air are free, dramas, entertainment, and current affairs programs are not.
For viewers in Korea and abroad, iMBC offers VOD streaming services. An episode typically costs around ₩500, and there is a fixed fee that allows users to watch as many videos as they want for ₩4,000 a day or ₩15,000 a month. For users that are abroad, iMBC offers VOD download and streaming services, available for ₩1000 (about $1 US) each.

KBS “The World They Live In” to have a bed scene

Writer Noh Hee Kyung said: “Although ‘The World They Live In’ is a profession-themed drama with the television station as its backdrop, it also reflects the younger generation’s distress and philosophy towards love, sex and marriage. It can also be said to be a drama that involves sex. At the same time on depicting the life of young people of 20+ to 30+ years old, questions related to sex will also be raised.”
In episode 4 of the drama to be shown tonight (4th Nov), Joon Young (Song Hye Kyo) and Ji Oh (Hyun Bin) have a erotic yet comical bed scene. In the beginning, both of them are serious in discussing about their work but their topics slowly changed to more personal ones. Just as both of them are engrossed in their conversation, they subconsciously arrive at Joon Young’s apartment. In the end, the red wine is the cause of “trouble”. After waking up the next morning, both of them do not feel awkward or embarrassed at all. Instead, they continue with their work discussion as though nothing had happen before. It is almost impossible to find a similar scene in past Korean dramas like the one described above.
Noh Hee Kyung said: “No matter how busy one is with work, love will not delay its arrival at his/her doorstep. When describing the work life of young adults, I will also talk about their love life. Joon Young and Ji Oh were lovers back during their undergraduate life in the university, of course they would have sex experiences before. The characters in a drama cannot always be so unreal, where only first love and first time exist.”
The bed scene is just the beginning, Noh Hee Kyung plans to add in pregnancy, family and marriage related problems that revolve around the leads, portraying the love and marriage of young professionals in the current Korean society.
