Korean newspaper articles of the past

Post by Kim Sung » 30 Apr 2009 06:50

Yesterday, NAVER.COM launched a new service that shows newspaper articles of the past. Korean language readers can see past articles of three newspapers Kyounghyang Newspaper (경향신문), Dong-A Ilbo (동아일보), Maeil Business Newspaper (매일경제). Chinese and Japanese language readers can also understand general meanings of articles published before the mid-1990s when the use of the Chinese Characters rapidly decreased in Korean newspapers. This new service will be very helpful for the research of modern Korean history.

Newspaper articles since January 1st, 1976 are available. Newspaper articles since the 1920s will soon be available.

As it has always been, Naver.com seems to be a pioneer of internet technology. Digital News Archive in the above is the world's first attempt to enable a reader to view newspaper articles of the past.

This month, Naver News Library service has been extended into April 1st, 1920 when Korea's first two modern newspapers were launched. You can see April 1st, 1920 edition of Dong-A Ilbo below. Forum members from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan might be able to understand about 70% of Korean newspaper articles of the early 1920s. Members from mainland China might be able to understand about 50%.
