      Larry King, the former host of CNN's longest-running program, the "Larry King Live" talk show, will visit Korea next month to take part in a forum held by broadcaster SBS.

      The broadcaster said that the 78-year-old TV host will deliver a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the 2011 Seoul Digital Forum on May 25.

      King said that he is excited about his first visit to Korea and taking part in the forum.

      Since his debut at a radio broadcaster in Miami in 1957, King has interviewed some 50,000 people over 53 years. His guests include world leaders, business people and celebrities such as U.S. President Barack Obama, the Dali Lama, Bill Gates and Lady Gaga.

      King retired from his live talk show last year after a 25-year run, and currently hosts specials on CNN four times a year.
