Template:Infobox Chinese/HeaderTemplate:Infobox Chinese/KoreanTemplate:Infobox Chinese/Footer The Korea Times is the oldest of three English-language newspapers published daily in South Korea, along with The Korea Herald and Korea JoongAng Daily. It is part of the same newspaper group as Hankook Ilbo, a major Korean language daily. The group also publishes Sports Hankook and Seoul Economic Daily.

Since its inception on November 1, 1950, The Korea Times has seen itself as a gateway to South Korea for English-speaking visitors and the diplomatic corps. Its coverage includes politics, society, business, finance, culture and sports. In recent years, The Korea Times has also published weekly "Foreign Community" section, as well as a weekender on Friday. It also publishes licensed content from The New York Times.[1]

In May 2006, The Korea Times switched from the McCune–Reischauer system to the officially recognized Revised Romanization system for writing Korean place names. The switch aims to help readers avoid confusion arising from the differences between the two systems.

Park Moo-jong[2] is the president and publisher of The Korea Times.
