If you’re an advanced learner, KBS 라디오 독서실 is another great learning material to further your Korean study, especially if you’re interested in Korean literature. In this program, the host, Byeon U-yeong or 변우영 (a female KBS announcer) will be reading a short story and what’s amazing is, the whole script is provided on the show’s website. You can think of it as free online Korean audio book. *She’s got such a beautiful and soothing voice, you can enjoy the ‘sound’ of her beautiful Korean even if you don’t understand much. *She’s the host, but there are also other voice actors who read the stories.
