KBS2 is the news, entertainment and drama channel of the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS). It is famous for its drama and entertainment programs. The television station is a result of the forced merger of the Tongyang Broadcasting Corporation (Former body of JTBC.) to KBS in 1980.


KBS2 is the home of most entertainment and drama programs produced by KBS as well as airing KBS News 6, the station’s main newscast, and Music Bank and You Hee-Yeol’s Sketchbook, the network’s main musical programs.


KBS2 accepts commercial advertisements unlike KBS1 which is due to the fact that KBS1 is prohibited to air commercial advertisements upon the enactment of the revised Broadcasting Act in 1994.
