Korean Broadcasting System (KBS)

KBS World Radio is Korea’s flagship public international broadcaster. Its maiden transmission was aired in a 15-minute English broadcast on August 15th, 1953, under the station name “The Voice of Free Korea”. KBS World Radio now broadcasts in Korean, Japanese, French, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Indonesian, Arabic, Vietnamese and German.

The station was renamed Radio Korea in April 1973, Radio Korea International in August 1994 and KBS World Radio in March 2005 in a bid to better reflect the station’s increasingly globalized mission.

By providing a variety of accurate and up-to-date programs and news on Korea’s politics, economy, society, culture and traditions to our audience and netizens, KBS and KBS World Radio seek to strengthen friendly ties and an understanding of Korea among people in the global community. In addition, we provide a bridge between Korea and the some seven million overseas Koreans who are missed by their loved ones back home.
