Journalism in Korea

I recently read an article that pointed out that it's not just the entertainment industry that is skewed in SK which many of us have known for a long while. This article was very interesting to me so I wanted to share it.

Fans of Korean entertainment often bemoan how terrible reporting can be on celebrity news. Whether it’s falsified stories about girl group members leaving the idol world forever, biased reporting towards certain entertainers or articles on news portals mysteriously disappearing, many people feel that there is serious room for improvement in the reporting and ethics of Korean entertainment journalism.
But this all pales into insignificance when compared with the issues facing political and current affairs journalism in South Korea right now. Issues so serious that many analysts are warning that the free press may be in danger under President Park Geun-hye’s government.
