[ News, Culture / Events, May 19 2007] Korean media contents to air in Middle East

Starting this summer, people in the Middle East and North Africa will be able to watch a variety of Korean programs.

This comes as the Korea Global Media Group plans to launch the 24-hour ‘Korea TV,' or a ‘Hallyu (meaning ‘Korean Wave' a reference to the popularity of Korean pop culture) satellite broadcast,' to further spread Korean cultural contents throughout the Middle East and North Africa from this coming July.

The broadcaster will be the first private media group to open such satellite broadcasting in the area, and it signed a contract with Nilesat103, Egypt's state-run satellite broadcaster in March to expand their services.
