Fact-Checking in South Korea

In South Korea, online videos and podcasts have taken precedence over the TV sector. More than half of Korean citizens state that they listen to a podcast at least once a month. People mostly follow news via videos that are on digital platforms. In response, TV broadcasters have gone towards streaming 24/7 on digital platforms like Kakap Talk and YouTube. On the other hand, concerns about fake news and misinformation in South Korea have risen. Fact-checking has become a common practice in many newsrooms with Seoul National University (SNU) coordinating activity in around 30 newsrooms using a common platform.

Trust in the news in South Korea is consistently amongst the lowest in the world. Just a fifth (22%) of the citizens agree that the news media are doing a good job and trust in news overall. The rate falls to 15% in the news on social media.
