BBC World News has a 30 minute segment called ‘The Travel Show‘ where a part of the world put under the spotlight and explored. This time around South Korea is the subject!

Rajan Datar explores the country and investigates some of its cultural eccentricities. This includes coverage of the ever unusual popularity of Mukbangs or ‘eating broadcasts’, as well as the South Korean martial art of Taekwondo and, as you might expect, K-Pop!

The episode will be repeated on the BBC News Channel at 3:30am, 1:30pm and 6:30pm for this week, but you can also watch it on BBC iPlayer for the next 29 days!
