Korea Times have win!

Why you wanna critic the KOREA TIMES? It has the integral. And the journalist skill! They have a unified Mind and so love of the KOREA.  @koreangov has WIKI-spill of intercourse in the middle of Newsman KIM Yoo-Chul (yckim@koreatimes.co.kr) and a dastardly.

From a dastardly (likely a Japans for it hasn't a prowess with the english):

Dear Sirs/Mesdames,

If it has not been indicated to your staff and editors that your paper is held in rather low regard by its target readership (the English speaking and predominantly expatriate community, if the advertisements are any indication), let me take this occasion to indicate  that it is indeed held in low regard, and to explain why that is so.

Attached is the text from an article published on Monday's online edition, located at http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/biz/2009/11/123_55161.html, written by Staff Reporter Kim Yoo-chul.  If this were a paper submitted for a high school English class, the teacher would almost certainly give it a failing grade. I have marked it and made commentary and corrections where appropriate.

It is full of grammar and syntax errors, apparent bias, unsourced quotes, and improper word choice. One might be tempted to point the finger solely at the author, but it's shocking that editorial oversight of news articles is so lax.  It truly appears that it was not proofread even once before being published.   This kind of failure causes your paper to be treated with disdain by many in the foreign community (search "Korea Times" on blogsearch.google.com), and cannot be hidden from your advertisers for long.  As it is, Korea Times is nearly equal to Arirang TV in lacking credibility and objectivity. 

I urge you to be more careful in your work. 

Sincerely,

Disappointed reader.

P.S. Although you may disagree with my assessment of the overall quality of the Korea Times, you will find that my critique of the article is not without merit.  If you choose to ignore my sentiment, by all means feel free. But you cannot contest the presence of several glaring errors in the article at issue.

But the KIM Yoo-Chul has the respond! Sock the dastardly atop the chin. 꽝!

Dear,
 
Thanks for your ``sincere'' advice and thoughtful comments on my stroy.
Really appreciate it.
 
Few things I just want to clarify.
The Korea Times has qualified copyeditors, as well as proven reporters.
You told me my story was biased and written with unsorced quotes. See what will happen. SK Telecom won't launch Apple's spec-down iPhones in the local market. I don't agree with your Apple-addicted biased views
Please be more thoughtful in dealing some sensitive issues. I am better than you in understanding technology and related industries.
 
Receive that! A Dastardly is downtrod from the KIM You-chul.  But the first important? KIM, Yoo-CHEOL is rescue the face and Justify! See:

Haha. Fuck the Korea Times. Kang Shin-who can burn in hell.

Did he seriously email you back to say he understands the industry more than you? Seriously?

Todd T;

The emails show the true.

We're heartened by Kim Yoo-chul facedown the dastardly. !

Great stuff....but do you seriously think that KoreaTimes cares for the readers? You pointed out the copyeditor's mistakes...and the reporter replied in his konglish! As i suspected, Samsung and LG have started 'planting' negative stories about iphone, not just in the korean media but also in the english language papers which no one reads! Your guy says:'You told me my story was biased and written with unsorced quotes. See what will happen. SK Telecom won't launch Apple's spec-down iPhones in the local market. I don't agree with your Apple-addicted biased views
Please be more thoughtful in dealing some sensitive issues. I am better than you in understanding technology and related industries.'
What a joke. He has already written negative stories about Apple, which are worth a fart....check this out: http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2009/12/133_56338.html
That's the way these chaebols operate! They corner the Korean reporters by saying that it is about 'Korean pride' ..i know, i have been there.
