KBS2 is a South Korean free-to-air channel owned by the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS). It mainly caters to a younger demographic, with programmes consisting of drama, entertainment shows and live sports coverage. KBS2 is a result of the forced merger of the Tongyang Broadcasting Corporation with KBS in 1980.

KBS2 is the home of predominantly entertainment and drama programmes produced by KBS such as Music Bank and You Hee-Yeol's Sketchbook, the network's main musical programs, Happy Together, Let's Go Dream Team!, 2 Days & 1 Night, The Return of Superman and Immortal Songs, the network's well known variety shows. Apart from drama and entertainment, the channel also shows films, popular talkshows, less news bulletins and more sporting events; this is in contrast to KBS1, which focuses more on news, current affairs, documentaries and cultural programming. As the target audience of KBS2 is younger than that of KBS1, they also broadcast a significant amount of children's programming in the mornings and afternoons.
