(Above picture: Protesters urge lawmakers to settle the conditions for the new channels under the media representative bill in front of the National Assembly in Yeouido, Seoul, on Dec. 28. / Yonhap)

Just as in any turf war, a clear hierarchy exists among TV channels. KBS, MBC and SBS are indisputably placed higher than any cable channels. So far and for the near future, the new comprehensive programming channels affiliated with Korea's major dailies are likely to remain at the bottom, for viewers and aspiring media personas.

After much fanfare and controversy, four TV channels began service on Dec. 1. After a month, their overall ratings remain under 1 percent.

Double standards in K-Entertainment

Source | 2011/11/05 | Permalink

Some time ago, when Korea was in a frenzy of banning Kpop songs, I joked that maybe they should ban also the dramas. I take back my bad, bad joke.

It's been on my mind for a while, but was wondering whether I should bother and cause another stir. But since it's my evil nature, I decided I should. K-entertainment is full of double standards, and non-equal treatment. We got accustomed to it to the point of numbness. I guess we all remember the "Han Ye-seul gate", so to those who somehow slept through whole summer - short recapitulation. Shooting of the drama in usual korean circumstances - 2 hours of sleep per week, 4 meals per week but 100% efficiency. You may ask how actors do it? I have no idea, frankly...More

Supernatural in Kdrama

What is the first thing on our mind when we hear "supernatural"? Wizards? Magical powers? None of them belong, in fact, to the world of "supernatural" or "overnatural" as I prefer to call it. The difference is huge. "Supernatural" depicts some extra amount added to the existing "natural" base (as in super-computer, it's still computer nonetheless), but "overnatural" is some kind of transgression. It stays with a distance from the natural, and it may or may not have few common places. I don't jump into the groundbreaking conclusion after seeing trailer to one movie. That would be as wise as judge Kdramaland after seeing only one episode of some drama. I read hundreds of sources, to tell the truth. And no, Gandalf doesn't belong to "supernatural". Magic is something different. Magic encompasses supernatural but it doesn't own it...More

New TV channels face uphill battle

Source | 2010/12/31 | Permalink

By Kim Tong-hyung

The country just took a significant step toward unplugging the Big Media by gift-wrapping major newspapers an entry into the television business. It bears further watching how the new cable television stations will compete in what is already a cut-throat broadcasting scene, although it's assured that Darwinism will be ruthlessly in action in the media market in 2011.

The Chosun Ilbo, JoongAng Ilbo and Dong-A Ilbo, the country's three biggest dailies, and Maeil Economic Daily, the leading business newspaper, landed the licenses for "comprehensive programming" channels, which will produce and broadcast original news content as well as entertainment, sports and documentary programs.

Yonhap News, the state-run wire agency, edged four other rivals for the rights to operate a news-only channel to complement YTN. Maeil Economic Daily will retire MBN, its existing cable news channel, as regulators won't permit the newspaper to hold both comprehensive and news-only channels.

It is expected that the new channels will see its debut sometime during the latter half of this year.

The ongoing media consolidation is at the core of an ambitious attempt by the Lee Myung-bak government to deregulate the media marketplace, which started last year by removing the country's traditional cross-ownership bar that prevented one corporation from owning newspapers and television stations at the...More

Major newspapers win new TV licenses

By Kim Tong-hyung

The country's major newspapers became winners, Friday, of an intense contest over the licenses to operate new cable television stations, an essential part of the Lee Myung-bak government's aspirations to deregulate the media industry.

The Chosun Ilbo, JoongAng Ilbo and Dong-A Ilbo, Korea's three biggest dailies, and the Maeil Economic Daily, a leading local business newspaper, landed the rights to operate "comprehensive programming" channels, which are to provide original news content on top of entertainment programs, sports broadcasts and documentaries.

Yonhap News, the state-run wire agency, edged four competitors to acquire a license to operate a news-only channel to complement YTN. The Maeil Economic Daily will soon retire MBN, its existing cable news channel, as regulators won't allow the group to operate it along with its new comprehensive programming channel.

The five new cable channels are expected to debut sometime during the latter half of this year.

The Korea Economic Daily and cable industry heavyweight Taekwang Group were the other companies that had been in contention for comprehensive programming channels, while Herald Media, Money Today, Seoul Newspaper and CBS had been in play for the news-only channels.

The winning bids were announced after a week-long review process by the Korea Communications Commission (KCC), which formed a panel of 14 experts picked from the fields of broadcasting, economics, business management, law...More

4 newspapers in all-or-nothing fight for cable channel licenses to secure next business model

By Kim Tong-hyung
Staff reporter

President Lee Myung-bak is aiming for a drastic change in the current mass media structure in two ways ― the creation of mega-media groups encompassing newspapers and television channels and the privatization of KBS and MBC.

For whatever reason Lee is determined and one of the most considerable changes is on the horizon ― picking winners among the established newspaper companies to establish two new "comprehensive" TV channels.

Although there are pros and cons regarding the profitability of such new channels, three big newspapers ― Chosun, Joongang and Donga all controlled by a major stakeholder ― as well as Maeil Business Daily hope that this opportunity will provide them with a new business model that will take them beyond what is widely seen as the impending demise of print news media.

The government has been pushing an ambitious plan to deregulate the media industry during the past two years, eliminating the traditional ban on media cross-ownership, which prevented a single company from owning both a newspaper and a television station.

The ownership restrictions involving television stations were eased to lure bigger companies to invest in the broadcasting sector. Previously, only companies with less than 3 trillion won (about $2.6 billion) in assets were able to own television news channels, but the revision of the broadcasting law last year raised the ceiling to 10 trillion won.

Critics are concerned that the compromised diversity in media ownership could hurt discourse, especially when they see the line between profit and reporting becoming blurry at traditional news organizations in a tightening advertising market.

In response, government officials maintain that deregulation is critical for the growth of the media industry and to enable the creation of globally-competitive companies that could hold their own against the likes of Disney and Fox.

But it doesn't appear that Korea will be getting its own Rupert Murdoch anytime soon, as the country's corporate heavyweights don't seem convinced that a full-blown television operation could turn into a golden goose.

The Korea Communications Commission (KCC), the country's converged regulator for broadcasting and telecommunications, will allocate an undetermined number of licenses for new cable channels, allowing them to provide comprehensive programming including news and entertainment, by the end of the y...More

Lawmakers Blast KTV for Low Rating

By Lee Tae-hoon
Staff Reporter

Lawmakers criticized public broadcaster KTV over its lack of popular appeal, Monday, saying that tens of millions of dollars are wasted by the state policy promotion agency.

The viewer rating of the 10 year-old channel in 2008 stood at a mere 0.069 percent, much lower than the industry average of 0.161 percent, according to independent lawmaker Song Hun-suk.

"Taxpayers' precious money has been poured into the station. Yet, its outcome has been completely devastating", Song said.

"KTV, whose operating costs reached 20.2 billion won ($17.2 million) last year, must improve its management and broaden its appeal to the public".

Rep. Han Sun-kyo of the governing Grand National Party also criticized KTV for its poor rating, saying the station does not have its own identity or appealing shows.
