As a result of the diversification of TV channels, viewers can watch many programs. This make their eyes very busy. Out of all the channels, the most remarkable channel is JTBC, which has gained popularity as news and entertainment show nowdays. Actually, JTBC is the channel which has been selected as the Korean viewer's most supreme channel since last year, in the Korea Information Society Development Institude. Do you Know why that channel was chosen?
As an example of news and entertainment shows gaining popularity, many people watch news programs that show journalist's being truthful. This gains the viewer's because of the ingenious programs and personal aspect the show.
Some of JTBC's variety shows assure viewer interest, however shows that stand out are ones that touch the viewer. "Take Care of the Refrigerator", "Give a Meal, Please", "With Dear Season 2-Greatest love", "Offer New House Give Me Old House", "Non-summit" and others, are examples of touching shows, but the one that recommend and standing out the most is "Speaking Main Streed."
Speaking Main Street has an ambiguous meaning. One is 'speaking Main Street', and the other is 'that as you speak'. To briefly explain the program in catchphrase, this is about verbal busking. Busking means to play instrument or sing a song in order to earn some money in the street. In this program's opening, a celebrity (for example a writer, comedian, director, actress, editor, and others) become a busker and talk about their speaking topic in the AA meeting. This is a meeting of alcoholics who come together anonymously and then overcome their addiction.
After this, they go out in the street by the speech door in the TV show setting and do some busking. If the courageous star's busking touches a listener's herad, they donate 1000won using a credit card in an installed maching.
The content the buskers sing about is advice or a story about the busker's many experiences, which has included femal life a speech about talking courage, how to overcome failure, the sanctity of life and so on. The various star's busking styles are so different, which means you can listen to a lot of busking. That is this program's feature, a good advantage and why I recommend it. If you listen to the busking, you can perceive unknown facts and feel healing, and listeners can pluck up their heart.
Actually, there were big concerns about the program's success in regards to casting and viewer numbers, however many people wanted to hear the busker's honest story, and many people awaited the show. They thought that this contact with strangers is fresh and fun!
This program goes everywhere while busking If you have a chance, listen to the courageous people's stor. Once MCs said they hope to someday also talk about what they want to freely in Korea, like speaker's Corner in Hyde Park, London. I hope so too. We're afraid of speaking and listening, sometime we should speak freely! What are you doing now? Go out and listen their brave story!
