So KBS apparently decided that it needed another revenue stream, so surely it was something modern, right? Korea is known for being wired, so this is gonna be fucking revolutionary, right?
No, it’s a fucking print magazine.
KBS recently held a launching ceremony for its new magazine, “KBS KWave” (K-wave). The event was held on July 18th at 5PM (KST) in Seoul’s K Hall.
“K-Wave will deliver the latest news for people worldwide. A monthly English publication will be released as well. With the spread of the Hallyu wave, the Korean language will become less of a barrier,” Kim Sunghwan added.
Additionally, it was revealed that, “KBS will be cooperating with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and trade to create a global wave to heighten the image of the country.”
In a video message, the Ministry of Culture indicated, “The frenzy of Hallyu drama K-Pop has been extended over to products and culture. Now the Hallyu Wave widens South Korea’s cultural renaissance as well.”
Meanwhile, “K-Wave Sport”] will be starting with their first issue in July, and they are aiming for the magazine to be published bimonthly with English and digital versions later on.
Will you be reading “K-Wave”?
I don’t even buy the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue since I can see the pictures online, why the FUCK would I buy this?
Why would anybody?
Unless the target demographic is AARP members, this idea isn’t spreading Korean culture for shit.
