KFOX is a Korean language AM radio station licensed to Torrance, California, broadcasting to the Los Angeles metropolitan area on 1650 kHz AM.

KFOX was launched in 1997 as KKJZ and was a simulcast of adult standards station KGIL. After several years, KKJZ became "K-News," providing constant news updates, and eight traffic updates each hour. In 2001, the station went from broadcasting in English to broadcasting in Korean and today is known as "Radio Seoul."

The KFOX call sign was previously used at 93.5FM (now KDAY) and 1280AM (now KFRN). The KKJZ call sign is now at 88.1FM in Long Beach, another L.A. suburb.
