콩 Player Aka Kong

For those of you that do not have the Korean language downloaded on either your Linux machine, your Macintosh, or Windows PC, I will translate the first word in the title line. In English you pronounce it as Kong, which means ball in English. This is a very interesting little application that I am quite fond of. Kong was a determining factor in me buying an Windows PC, along with some other proprietary software. This is a little application that can sit in your start bar in Windows and it streams different KBS stations live. The KBS is the oldest and one of the most successful content creators in Korea. They first started with radio back in the day and have branched out within the realms of television etc. Anyways I enjoy listening to their radio stations quite often. I will warn you it is quite difficult in registering for a login name to listen to their content. There is a pretty long wait period, but of course if you reside in Korea, the process is faster. They also require a lot of personal information for some reason…  I’ve talked with several Korean friends of mine and it is just a way for them to verify you. A lot of foreign services or website require some kind of this information. Anyways check it out at http://world.kbs.co.kr/english/radio/howlisten/kongpod.htm. This is a must have app for my Vista Machine.
