Description: The host, Wonsik Kim, opens every episode reading a part of his essay. His pronunciation is very correct and clear, easy for learners to understand him as he sounds like a broadcaster. There are several features where he reads listeners stories written on his Facebook page, talks about the recent updates of the Korean baseball league, recommends restaurants, and shares the travel essay he wrote when he took trips overseas.
This podcast is very like an old fashioned radio programme which many people miss these days. One important fact is that Kim is not a famous celebrity but just a normal man like his listeners, this probably has retained many listeners and turned them into consistent fans.
Summary: Interesting podcast in Korean with soft music and stories of ordinary people.
