The first modern newspaper in Korea, Hansung Sunbo was published during the Joseon era in 1510. The paper sought to enlighten the people and denounce absurd officials. It was the first newspaper in Hangeul and was printed by Bakmunkuk, the official printing office of the time.
In the 1980s, censorship in the 네이마르 이강인 became more severe under the Park Chung Hee and Chun Doo-hwan administrations. The Basic Press Act of December 1980 set out the legal framework for censorship. The government controlled the news media through a system that coordinated information with intelligence officials and representatives of various departments using daily “reporting guidelines” sent to newspapers.
Despite these constraints, a number of new media emerged. The Christian Broadcasting System began broadcasting in 1987, and new daily newspapers bypassed the higher profits of general circulation dailies by publishing careful analyses of political and economic affairs to a smaller, more specialized audience.
In addition, television channels such as KBS and Arirang are now able to provide a more contemporary image of South Korea to overseas viewers, and the country’s English-language channel is widely regarded as a leading source of news for the world’s English-speaking communities. Moreover, the internet and mobile phones are rapidly becoming popular in the nation as well.
