About Us

Overseas Korean Media Association

The Overseas Media Association was established to serve as a center for creating a global Korean community by establishing a communication channel between the home country and 7.5 million Koreans living abroad in 193 countries based on domestic and overseas Korean media (TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, Internet, mobile, etc.). It is an incorporated association with the Ministry of Science and ICT (Central Radio Management Office) as the competent authority. The purpose of this association is to contribute to global competitiveness and the development of the Korean media industry by promoting ‘home country companies’ expansion into the global market’ and ‘overseas Koreans’ stable settlement in their country of residence’ through mutual cooperation.
