Networks adopting new tactics to combat information leaks from fans on social media
The reality show craze that has dominated Korean television for the past couple of years doesn't show any signs of abating. Triggered by the popularity of competition reality shows like "Superstar K", Korea's take on "American Idol", there are more than six reality shows airing right now with another four slated to hit the airwaves later this year.

2NE1 album cover for their first officially released album "To Anyone".
Among hundreds of celebrities, only a select few become mega-stars, and they require more than just beautiful faces and nice bodies. When 2NE1 debuted in September 2009, they quickly rose to stardom, breaking new ground for girl group singers in the Kpop industry by shattering the stereotypes previously set for a "Korean girl group" – pretty, but rather bland, lacking in personality.
2NE1 first became known to the public through the song, "Lollipop", digitally released in early 2009, as a promotion song for an LG Cyon mobile phone commercial. It was a joint release with Big Bang, the hottest all-boy "idol" group in Korea, as well as sharing the same label, YG Entertainment. "Lollipop" immediately hit No. 1 on various online charts as well as on several music television shows for over three consecutive weeks...More

For fashion-savvy men and women, television is the easiest way to tune into the latest trends. Nowadays, cable channels offer various programs from both home and abroad, and it's up to viewers to pick the most suitable show to fit their taste.
Browsing the shows aired here, one may find that local offerings tend to feature only one side of fashion and also discover the need for more entertaining, creative ideas to attract the eyes and ears of viewers. What is fashion without a bit of innovation and creativity, anyway?
The more information, the better
Fashion programs in Korea follow a common pattern: the more information, the better.
Many shows here offer advice on the act of purchasing: where to buy what, how to get the best deal, and which season or time is the best to open your wallets.
"It hasn't been long since viewers have shown such a vast interest in fashion. We have a limited amount of time to produce and make such shows and one of the most important factors is the budget. Limited time and budget doesn't allow for a lot of possibilities, and the fastest and most effective way to satisfy viewers is to offer them useful information", Lee Woo-chul, chief producer of cable channel OnStyle's production team, told The Korea Times.
Satisfying viewers under a tight budget is one thing, but Koreans being info-savvy is not a trend, but actually a cultural trait.
"Korean consumers are relatively shy when it comes to making de...More
