For four-year-old preschooler Park Sang-lin, watching television is not as exciting as it used to be.
"She loves television, but it's hard to find something that fits her age and needs. Local programs tend to be a bit boring for her, so she watches cartoons or other children's programs made overseas", Min So-ra, Park's mother, told The Korea Times.
Local channels are failing to satisfy children's needs. Some networks simply air cartoons while others broadcast out-of-date shows. What will it take for local networks to come up with fun, colorful and educational programs fit for the younger crowd?
