Media Links

Please contribute to a list of online media websites for Korean news...

Korea Central News Agency (DPRK): http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm
Yonhap News (ROK): http://english.yna.co.kr/
People's Daily (China): http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/
Kyodo News (Japan): http://home.kyodo.co.jp/
Asia Times: http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Korea.html
Asia Media: http://www.asiamedia.ucla.edu/

Isn't there another ROK news source called ROK Online Daily? I've read translated articles from it through FBIS but I can't find a link to it =/

If there's a clear political orientation to the source, please include that too.

Hey guys,

Here are two Korean newspaper sites in English that I read once in a while. There's no political slant that I can think of, but some people feel that the traditional Korean papers are rather conservative in their political ideology.

www.english.chosun.com
www.english.donga.com

But to be honest, the site that I check out the most often deals with K-pop: www.soompi.com

Hi. Let me advertise what I do as an RA, here.
I am maintaining the website for a project of the Sigur Center, called "Memory and Reconciliation in the Asia-Pacific". And I update its "news brief" page at least once a week to cover related historical and political issues.

Erik,

I think the "ROK Online Daily" you saw is FBIS's cute name for "The Daily NK", which is at http://www.dailynk.com -- it focuses on the DPRK and has a lot of defector accounts; its English page is pretty nice: http://www.dailynk.com/english/

There are also these news sites (of the ones in English):

Korea Herald: http://www.koreaherald.co.kr

Korea Times: http://times.hankooki.com/
