Hello Kpop Lovers!
I don’t get to watch Rated K on Sundays because it’s a family day and we’re usually out in the evening. Luckily, we didn’t go out that night so I was able to watch the show and I was gladly surprised that they’re featuring South Korea, it’s places, food,high-technology and artists. When they featured Kpop, I feel like belong to that country because I can totally relate in everything they say, all the Kpop group and events shown. I’d like to share this to everyone of you (not just Filipino kpop fans). There’s no site providing downloadables on local shows so I’m gonna translate everything Korina (host) said by seconds on the video. I’m gonna try my best so I hope you all like it ^_^
Rated K. A Magazine show broadcasted on ABS-CBN every Sunday. Features human interest stories and no-holds barred interviews with interesting personalities. Korina Sanchez once again showcases her specialty in news gathering and presentation as she goes to all places and spaces wherever there’s a story needs to be told. This hard-hitting broadcast journalist also sits down with various people from all walks of lives to hear their stories and views about anything under the sun. (source: Abs-cbn)
