Journalism Internship in Seoul

With television, newspapers, magazines, Internet websites and radio dominating the mass media scene in South Korea, the country can be deemed as media-rich. As a leader in the current digital revolution, South Korea relies much on electronic means for news delivery. That being said, there are over 122 national newspapers in circulation today in the country. In addition, there are a number of local daily newspapers too for the urban centers and provincial capital cities.


Many of the media giants are based in the capital city Seoul, since this city is the center of the country’s politics, business and culture. Online news sources are major news providers in the country given the ultra-fast wireless internet services available here.


If you’re interested in Internet journalism, there is nothing better than an International Journalism internship Korea to pursue your interest. Overall, South Korea has a vibrant amalgam of Internet-based media, print media and broadcast media. The high population literacy rate of South Korea, over 99%, has been an important factor in the demand for educated and free media. From time to time, the country’s media has seen signs of restriction and censorship, but the robust media environment has sustained these curtails well enough.
