anime!anime! reports that TV Kanagawa is launching a new TV program focusing specifically on South Korea's pop culture, especially the usual otaku topics: anime, manga, and games. The program is called Korea Hot Wave and was born from the unholy union of TV Kanagawa and the KOCCA-- the Korean Culture and Content Agency as a method of broadening horizons.

The program will run weekly from February 3 (which, in Japan, to March 24, for a total of eight episoodes (for now) and will be hosted by Yoshiko Sasabe, a freelance writer and South Korea expert. Sounds kinda fun to me! Hopefully it might help calm down some of the more volatile South Korean otaku, too.
