The Vietnamese Language Service of KBS’ international radio broadcasting, KBS World Radio, celebrates its 5th anniversary on March 3, 2010. As part of the celebration, a Singing Contest of Korean Songs took place at KBS on January 24. A total of six Vietnamese finalists living in Korea entered the competition and showed outstanding performances of the latest hits in Korean pop music. A series of preliminary competitions was held for a month prior to the final contest.
Meanwhile, KBS World Radio has further expanded its services. Following the launch of its English news onto Naver, the nation’s leading Internet portal site, in October last year, the international radio began to service its Chinese and Japanese news from February 1. Also, from January 29, KBS World Radio started to provide its English and Japanese news services to Japan nationwide through Nikkei Telecom. The Radio’s new “Slow-paced News” service through its multi-lingual website ( http://world.kbs.co.kr ) is getting overwhelming response from foreigners home and abroad and learners of English language. The service enables the listeners to enjoy the news at a slower speed.
