Posted on english.chosun.com

The Chosun Ilbo is Korea’s favorite newspaper, a survey among 10,000 people between 19 and 79 in September by Millward Brown Media Research for the Korea Advertisers Association finds.

Some 20.2 percent of respondents cited the Chosun Ilbo as their favorite paper.

A whopping 99.3 percent had a TV, with 1.47 TV sets on average per home. MBC topped the list as the favorite TV channel at 72.8 percent, followed by KBS (71.4 percent), SBS (52.9 percent), YTN (11.9 percent), and OCN (8.8 percent).
