“Arirang” is a song embodying the unique energy of the Korean people. It has the strength to unite Korean people and make communication possible through its spirited and enlightening melody and lyrics.
Launched in 1997, Arirang TV/Radio has been taking on the role of "a global network through communication” in relation to this unique energy of the Korean people. Arirang TV/Radio is making efforts to properly inform viewers around the world of various perspectives through contents that show the true faces of Korea. Across all ages and countries, the core element of the development and growth of a nation, has been its exchange with other countries. Countries geographically advantaged for exchange became powerful nations, while countries with the opposite factors were slower to develop.
Arirang TV/Radio is expanding active real-time communication with viewers around the world by bridging the global platform.
Arirang TV/Radio is meeting people around the world 24 hours a day.
It is now a channel of emotion that communicates with all mankind and a brand evaluated by people all around the world.
Arirang TV/Radio is doing its best to have a balanced voice as a media diplomacy channel, with in-depth news and current affairs programs, including democratic achievements of South Korea and the true nature of history, as well as the platform revolution that runs through the 5G era.
It is the only English language international broadcast that can deliver the most accurate and objective news from the perspective of the parties involved, especially at a time when tensions are rising in the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia.
Based on these unique contents, it is broadcasting to 103 countries and 138 million receiving households around the world, and has signed broadcasting exchange agreements with 98 broadcasting companies in 57 countries to expand interaction with leading overseas broadcasting companies.
In addition, we are already supplying video contents through 40 global platforms in partnership with global video platform companies and are trying to communicate with people around the world in real-time through the spread of social media.
In 2000, Arirang TV/Radio began South Korea's first broadcasting without borders and connected the world's viewers as one. Now we are working hard on our communication and relationship with each and every viewer.
"Si vales bene est, ego valeo". It means "It's great if you are well. That is good, I am well too." This is a greeting that Romans used regularly when writing letters. The greeting which expresses that 'I am only well if you are' corresponds with the heartwarming meaning of Arirang - Shared joy.
With our original intention of wanting to communicate with people around the world, at the time of our launch, we at Arirang TV/Radio will do our best to give rise to excitement in the world as reflected in the lyrics of the song "Arirang."
