The Huffington Post is expanding yet again. The site has partnered with Korea’s Hankyoreh Media Group — owner of The Hankyoreh — to launch The Huffington Post Korea. The Korean language site will combine the blogging power of HuffPost with Hankyoreh’s knack for smart and dependable reporting. The Korean public has consistently voted The Hankyoreh as the nation’s most trustworthy newspaper.
“We’re delighted to add a Korean edition to the HuffPost family, and to be partnering with Hankyoreh Media Group, which has earned a reputation for trust and quality in everything from politics, economics and investigative reporting to entertainment, food and sports,” said Arianna Huffington, in a statement. “By joining forces, we’ll be combining Hankyoreh’s independent spirit and history of fighting for press freedom with the power of the HuffPost platform, telling the stories that need to be told and — just as important — inviting Koreans to tell their stories themselves.”
“I believe HuffPost Korea can be a new window bringing global news to Korean people faster and more accurately than ever, and also a means for spreading important Korean news across the globe,” added Yang Sang-Woo, president and CEO of Hankyoreh Media Group.
