“We are dedicated to providing readers with reliable news as the best source of information”

The Chosunilbo first hit newsstands in 1920 and now celebrates almost a century of journalistic excellence thanks to the unwavering support of our readers over the years.

We have grown into what we are today by sharing both tears and laughter with generations of our readers. Based on our strong expertise in news reporting, we have evolved into one of Korea’s largest media groups, Chosun Media, encompassing a wide range of subsidiaries ranging from broadcast and new media to publishing.

The media landscape is changing rapidly, and the Internet is overflowing with inaccurate information and unconfirmed rumors. But even in these tumultuous times, we have continued to maintain accuracy in order to live up to the expectations of our readers. We believe our efforts to provide fair and accurate accounts of events as well as in-depth analysis and expert commentary on the issues gripping society and lucid editorials that cut through bias are the cornerstones of our distinguished content.

We are leading the way in this era of media convergence, in which the walls that once separated different areas of the industry are crumbling. We opened a new website "," to provide the latest economic and business news in real time. TV Chosun, The Chosunilbo's television channel, was launched in December 2011. Living up to our reputation, our sphere of influence has been extended by covering all areas of media such as print media, broadcasting and new digital media.

Throughout our history, we have always served as the eyes and ears of our readers. We will continue to keep our ears open to voices and demands from our readers and viewers. Based on a reputation earned through our readers’ steadfast support and trust, we pledge to wield our influence in good faith and make the utmost effort to serve the public. We will abide by our high standards to become the best source of information with the largest number of readers from all age groups and classes in Korea as The Chosunilbo approaches its centenary. Please stay tuned and keep reading.
