I installed the Naver Music Player to listen to some Korean songs. The player seems designed only for people with a very fast internet connection which of course is not an issue in South Korea. However, for people living outside of South Korea even for ones with a fast internet connection and especially for people for slow internet connections, we are unable to listen to music because it isn’t fully downloaded when we try to listen to it. While playing the song, the black line indicates, how much has downloaded and once the play button arrives at the black line, then it returns to the beginning of the song, where it starts downloading it again. On non Korean sites if you have a slow internet connection and want to listen to music, you can press the pause button and wait for the entire song to have downloaded and then play it. However, with the Naver music player, if you press pause it doesn’t continue downloading so there is no way to wait say five minutes or ten or twenty and then listen to the song. Furthermore, even for people with the Korean language pack installed, if you are an English version of IE or Windows, then the artist name and album name appear as gibberish.
