[The Chosun Ilbo, January 22 2008] YouTube May Launch Korea Service

YouTube, the world's biggest content-sharing website, may soon launch service in Korea.

No details on a date are available yet, but Korea's Yonhap News quoted a YouTube spokesperson as saying it will hold a press conference this Wednesday in Seoul to explain how its service will be adapted to local needs.

Koreans already rank among the most tech-savvy in the world, showing keen enthusiasm for creating online content using digital cameras and cell phones.

YouTube's launch here would make Korea the tenth country to host overseas service by the Google affiliate, which boasts 100 million clicks daily.

Service was set to start late last year but the company decided to delay the introduction so as not to be overshadowed by the presidential election.
