6 In Apps for learning Korean/ Apps to download in Korea/ Korean learning journey (:

Korean Radio App: MBC 라디오 Mini

Radio~~!! 😀 SBS Gorealra Radio has now stopped airing ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ So I’ve found a new alternative, as I’m sure everything has noticed!

It’s was on auto mode yesterday but now I’ve switched it to non-auto. So just click play if you want to listen to it!!

Btw, you can toggle it by pressing the left and right button (on the widget) to change to different charts: TOP 20 combined, TOP 20 ballads etc ALOT of charts

Because it’s my blog, I’ve set it to play the 40/50대 트로트 music (Korean trot music for the 40s-50s). HAHHA this is my music taste. Anyway, clicking to the right will bring you to the kpop charts LOL

Now, introducing a radio app that you can listen on the go!!

MBC 라디오 Mini!

It’s available as both a phone app and apparently a desktop widget. First, the app!! I just downloaded the app yesterday so didn’t have much time to explore!

It’s quite self explanatory! You can access the live radio, look at the schedule, leave messages (i suspect you have to have a MBC ID for this).

The radio is also available as a desktop widget, but knowing Korea… it only works with IE and Windows. BOO.

So you can try installing the widget by following the instructions here!!


Happy listening!

Download the app: Android | iTunes
