Chōsen Shinpō

Chōsen Shinpō / 朝鮮新報, (Pusan, Korea)

Chōsen Shinpō Masthead

The Chōsen Shinpō was most likely the first newspaper published on the Korean peninsula. From December 1881, it was published in Japanese and Chinese, the former targeting the Japanese residents in Pusan and the latter educated Koreans. The publisher was Zai Fuzankō Shōhō Kaigisho (The Chamber of Commerce at the Pusan Port). It was published three times a month, primarily featuring commerce and trade-related articles and promoting Japanese business at the open port. The issues included in this collection are March to May 1882, although the last issue date is not clear. The title is different from the Chōsen Shinpō published by Chōsen Shinpōsha in Incheon.

『朝鮮新報』は恐らく朝鮮半島の新聞第一号と思われる。1881年12月から在釜山港商法会議所が発行した。釜山在住の日本人を対象とした日本語と教養のある韓国人を対象とする漢語の記事が掲載された。発行は月に3回、主に商業、貿易に関する記事を掲載、開港場での日本の事業を促進した。最終号の日付は明らかでなく、当コレクションには1882年3月から5月に発行された号が含まれる。仁川で朝鮮新報社により発行された『朝鮮新報』とは異なる。
