[LETTERS to the editor]Please expand TV guide, horoscopeAside from the JoongAng Daily’s constant and well-deserved criticism of Korea’s current bureaucracy, the TV Guide and horoscope are what I enjoy the most.
That is, until you recently eliminated the listing for the Discovery Channel. Not good, because it represents the very best of Korean cable TV programming. Not only that, you substituted “AXN,” which is not one of my 100 or so channels. Please reconsider.
And while you’re at it, since you now have 12 pages to work with, please expand the TV Guide to include all English language channels, with their entire day’s schedule, and eliminate all non-English channels. For example, your guide includes the History Channel, which would be great, but its policy of dubbing Korean for English makes it useless to non-Korean speakers. Same goes for the “Q” channel (mostly).
Of course, I realize that Korean speakers also read your pages, but are they really the audience you’re looking for?
Also, please give us the horoscopes for Saturday and Sunday. They’re great fun, and something I read first thing every morning.
