Young netizens find radio stations more enjoyable to listen to as a result of ongoing MBC & KBS strikes
It's been approximately 4 weeks since employees at MBC (Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation) and KBS (Korea Broadcasting Station) launched a general strike against their companies.
Initially, the strikes took a toll on news broadcasts and radio broadcasts, then spread to informative broadcasts and variety shows. In the 4th week of ongoing strikes, MBC's major programs such as 'Radio Star', 'Infinity Challenge', 'Show! Music Core', 'I Live Alone', and many more have been replaced with special broadcasts. KBS programs such as '1 Night 2 Days', 'Superman is Back', and most recently, 'Happy Together 3', have been or will be replaced with special broadcasts because of the inability to produce new content.
