ABSTRACT

This paper examines the state of the media activities of Zainichi Koreans in postwar Japan, focusing on Mindan Shimbun and Minshu Shimbun published by Mindan in postwar Japan. Among the many newspapers published by Zainichi Koreans in postwar Japan, the Mindan Shimbun actively criticized the newspapers of Choren in their publications and expanded their readership by establishing the identity of the newspaper. The Mindan Shimbun, published by Mindan, seems to have tried to secure a variety of writers and readers without resorting to the claims of certain states, while the newspaers of Choren strongly ruled out the “pro-Japanese and rightists”. The Mindan Shimbun dated October 25, 1947 was the last of the 20th issue. Park Jun, who was in charge of editing and publishing the Mindan Shimbun, pointed out that Mindan Shimbun, “Mindan,” offered misleading preconceptions in various ways, and that the readership was also limited to some extent. He further stated that the future should extended and the readership expanded. This allegation by Park Jun changed his name to “Minshu Shimbun”, which was followed by a reissue from November 11, 1947.
