The 'Media Korean Studies' was established for the purpose of globalization and popularization of Korean Studies.
We has worked for the development of Korean studies since its founding in 1964. Early in publishing, we reproduced the original historical materials by photo typography and supplied them, and in 1980s, we collected and arranged the newspaper and magazine materials then also published them as a type of photo print. It means that we tried to publish the modern historical materials being destroyed. 韓國歷代文集叢書, the integration of cultural creativity from ancient sages, was first stared to be published in 1990 and so far, total 3,000 volumes were published and we are supposed to make publication through the excavation and rearrangement of scattered materials as much as possible.
From 2000, we started to publish such as Research series for Korean Studies from Kyungin, Research series for relations between Korea and Japan , Research series from Koryo Historiography Association, collecting the outstanding research achievements, and composed the infrastructure for developing Korean Studies. In addition, we pioneered the prevalence of Korean Studies publishing scholarly worthy books maintaining close cooperation with several academic institutions and research laboratory.
In the 21st century of information society, Korean Studies have the superiority and universality which can positively contribute to develop human society. We have purpose of prevalence and practical uses to communicate with public not the subject of intellectual inquiry from minor professionals being isolated from public life. This is the instrument of establishing Media Korean Studies. Media Korean Studies is willing to provide the public as well as professional researchers with best service to take advantage without constraints of time and place through the digitalization of knowledge resources. We, Media Korean Studies, aims to produce new knowledge and culture combining the information contained in old data with various knowledge and creative production techniques instead of being limited the digitization of them.
We, the employees of Media Korean Studies, pledge to slowly walk forward step by step, reminding the attitude of '溫故知新'. I really appreciate your concerning from deep in mind. I promise that I'll always do my best to live up to expectations.
