[The Chosun Ilbo, February 12 2008] 40% of Korean Web Users Run Blogs

A recent survey by the National Internet Development Agency reveals that nearly eight in 10 Koreans over the age of six use the Internet.

That's about 34 million people nationwide, and among them more than 80 percent use e-mail and 40 percent run their own blogs.

The survey also finds about 70 percent of Korean Internet users access at least one traditional media such as newspapers, movies and radio through the Web.

Internet usage grew between June 2006 and 2007 thanks in part to an 8 percentage point increase in access to the Web among people over 50.
