The history of JoongAng Ilbo is in itself a record of innovation in the Korean media industry. We have written the history of Korean newspapers with pioneering moves, including the use of Korean instead of Chinese characters in the headlines, the introduction of horizontal text and sections, the launch of the Sunday edition JoongAng Sunday, and the switch to the more compact Berliner format. These were all efforts to put our readers first.
