The Unification Ministry is to start Internet broadcasts on issues relevant to the unification of the divided Korean Peninsula this year, a ministry official said.
The project aims to help the public gain better understanding of unification issues and comes under a ministry goal this year to prepare for the rejoining of the two Koreas. The peninsula has remained divided since the end of the three-year Korean War in 1953.
The ministry said it is considering live Internet radio broadcasts for at least one or two hours per day, and may also search for a spot on a cable television channel to air the North Korea-related content from its Internet broadcasts, including sketches of the impoverished country’s current situation.
The ministry plans to operate its programs with a five-member broadcasting team that includes external broadcasting experts, and will launch a test-run in the first half of the year before entering full-scale broadcasting by the year’s end. (Yonhap News)
