ABSTRACT

The rating system on media has to reflect the social consensus. Therefore, the rating system functions as the core mechanism to realize the integration of the value of a society or a nation. Several times in the process of democratization, the constitutional court ruled the intervention of state power as unconstitutional. The Korean society is right now at the middle of building up community values between state power and citizens and consensus on how to carry out these built constitutional values. Within the constitution and current legal system and considering the Korean social maturity and the conflict among social values, KMRB(Korea Media Rating Board) functions to guarantee the right of information choice for customers in order to minimize the adverse effects of information delivered in the form of audiovisual to the minor. For this sake, the legislations on the media rating system need to adopt diverse policies: the rating denial system, improvement of the subcommittee system for the reinforcement of professionalism and scientific approach, introduction of the jury system and the hearing system for the security of democracy, and introduction of the integrated rating system. These policies will help change KMRB to become a more public trusted organization institutionally and actually.
