Super Junior's Kiss the Radio (also known as SuKiRa)is a radio program in which Super Junior members Eeteuk and Eunhyuk DJ. On some days you can watch the show live (these are called 'BORA' shows) by going to the KBS studios. To find out if a show is going to be shown live, you can either find out by going to the homepage of Kiss the Radio or checking out fansites. I find that most forums will give you a list of viewable Sukiras for the week.
Many people make the mistake of directing people to the KBS Hall, which is in fact a totally different building. What you really want is the KBS Main Station (방송국 본관). The window to see inside the studio is facing the street so you probably won't miss it if you are on the right road. And being on the right road is the reason why you're here right?

ADDRESS: 대한민국 서울특별시 영등포구 여의동 KBS방송국 본관
METRO STOP: National Assembly (국회의사당) Line 9. Exit 4
DIRECTIONS: The simplest way to get there is to walk straight out of exit 4, going straight until you hit the end of the road and then turn right. The location is to your right and it's really hard to miss especially at night. The sign there glows very brightly. Not only that, but there will be a gathering of girls there waiting for it to start.
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?:
The viewing window is right below this sign which glows at night.
WHAT TO DO?: There are a number of things you can do when you get there. They leave the doors to the indoor part of the studio open for the girls to come in and give their boys gifts. You can watch the boys enter and leave the studio from here. You can't get too close, but it allows for a small photo opportunity for fans.
Outside is the window for viewing. The benches will be marked off by girls who came earlier and left a piece of paper there to mark their place. These girls are usually fans that run websites and need the pictures for those websites. Please let them take their pictures because most of them are nice (at least the ones I've met) and will move or make room for you if you want to see them later on in the show. Most of them will leave after the first hour, some will not.
WHAT TO PACK?: Rain gear or a fan during summer months, and a heavy jacket for the winter ones. The place where they have Sukira is actually covered a bit, but when the rain blows, it comes into where you stand and that's just unpleasant. Remember your camera (the one with the good lens) if you want pictures. And try not to make your signs too big because they irritate everyone around you who want a look at the boys too.
Most of the people there will be foreigners, like you and me, so you won't have too much of a hard time communicating with other fans. All in all, it's a great place to meet other fans as well as get some quality time with boys that you probably won't be able to meet otherwise (unless they're promoting in Korea, which doesn't happen very often...)
