[The Chosun Ilbo, December 14 2007] Digital Chosun Starts New Keyword Click Service

The Digital Chosun Ilbo will launch a new service allowing readers to access detailed additional information while reading a news article by clicking key words in the report. A similar service is provided by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek. Named “Focus,” the service offers detailed information on 1,900 celebrities, top-500 corporations, 300 domestic government agencies/public organizations, 197 countries and 208 major cities in the world.

Readers of the online edition will be able to look up additional information without resorting to encyclopedias or portal search services. For example, if readers want to know more about a company in an M&A report in the Digital Chosun Ilbo site, just a mouse-click on the company’s name brings up details of its history, business, stock price and corporate news. The service is currently available for the Korean edition only.
