Bitmaru Broadcasting Support Center [빛마루방송지원센터], established in 2012 and operated by Korea Communications Commission [대한민국 방송통신위원회] — South Korea’s media regulation agency — is a venue that was created to provide infrastructures for small broadcasters. The music show Show Champion (쇼 챔피언) is broadcasted live by MBC Music every Wednesday from this center.This center is located in Goyang’s neighborhood Janghang [Janghang-dong/장항동] in the Ilsandong District [Ilsandong-gu/일산동구].

KUNWON Architects, the company that designed this building, explain that they work with the concept of “digital wave for media”; the repetitive exterior pattern representing thus the “pixel as minimum digital unit.”
