Brief historyEdit

Radio 1 was originally launched as Kyeongseong Broadcasting Corporation (JODK) by the Japanese government in Korea on February 16, 1927, and later adopted the callsign HLKA in 1947 after South Korea got the HL callsign block from the International Telecommunication Union. In 1965 the name was changed to KBS Radio 1.
