[Korea.net News, Economy / Industry, December 1 2007] Korea's NHN to relaunch Web search services in Japan

Korea’s top Internet company by market value said Friday (Nov. 30) it will establish a new subsidiary in Japan to relaunch search services in that country, almost three years after it halted them.

NHN Corp., which operates the most visited search engine as well as online game sites in Korea, one of the world’s most wired countries, will soon set up Naver Japan, which is to concentrate on web search service in Japan.

It stopped offering its Japanese-language search service in January 2005, saying it was unable to dent Yahoo Japan Corp.’s dominance.
