The Korean news media industry is characterized by constant change as news media companies adapt their strategies to attract and retain readers, respond to evolving reader preferences, and navigate rules and regulations. However, recent developments have brought new challenges to the forefront.

One significant development is the temporary suspension of operations by a joint Naver-Kakao news evaluation committee, responsible for vetting media outlets seeking exposure on their online search platforms. Consequently, the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) is expected to assume a more active role in verifying news content.

In light of these developments, PUBLISH Institute has published a comprehensive post exploring the implications for the news media industry. The article provides valuable insights into the changing dynamics and the potential consequences for media outlets. To read the full post, visit
