The Korean Republic

The Korea Herald began in August 1953 as The Korean Republic, a 4-page tabloid English-language daily. In 1958, The Korean Republic published its fifth anniversary issue of 84 pages, the largest ever in Korea. In 1962, The Korean Republic published its first daily educational supplement and launched the Korean Republic English Institute (the Korea Herald Language Institute).

The Korea Herald

Then, in 1965, The Korean Republic was renamed The Korea Herald. In 1973, The Korea Herald opened a branch office in Los Angeles, the United States. In 1975, The Korea Herald introduced Korea's first computerized typesetting system. In 1982, the daily international edition of The Korea Herald was launched as an 8-page tabloid.


The Korea Herald launched its website in 1995. In 1996, the publishing process for The Korea Herald was computerized. In 1997, the company published the official newspaper of the 18th Winter Universiad. In 1997, Korea Telecom selected The Korea Herald as the official public database partner. The first Herald School, a franchised English education center for children, opened in 2000 as the Herald Academy Inc. In August of the same year, The Korea Herald began to publish 20 pages daily.

The Junior Herald

In 2004, Herald Media won the right to manage the Seoul English Village, an English language immersion school set up by the Seoul Metropolitan City government. Later that year, The Junior Herald, an English-language newspaper for preteens, was launched.

“Insight into Korea” book series

The Korea Herald launched a book series in 2007 to mark the 20th anniversary of the civilian uprising in June 1987, which put Korea on a path to democracy. The purpose of the project was to present a comprehensive analysis of Korean society's transformation during the past two decades.

The Korea Herald has thus far published eight books under this series: Insight into Korea, Social Change in Korea, Political Change in Korea, A New National Strategy for Korea, Korean Wave, Big Bang in Capital Market, Financial Industry at a Crossroads and Insight into Dokdo.
