From start of the first radio broadcasting in 1927 to the emergence of black-and-white TV in 1956 and color TV in 1980 to the multichannel and multimedia in the 2000s, Korean broadcasting made significant changes in its technology and contents. It also conveyed many voices of the public as a means of realizing democracy. This exhibition is designed to reflect on the roles of broadcasting in the modern history from the 1920s to the present and shape the future of broadcasting.
