Purpose

We will soar high and beyond as the world’s leading press foundation.

LG Sangnam Press Foundation was established in 1995 to train journalists and support media development. Based on the founding philosophy of “contributing to the healthy development of the media, which plays a pivotal role in society, and the enhancement of national culture,” we conduct various projects such as overseas training and linguistic education for journalists.

We will continue to do our utmost to contribute to enhancing
the global competitiveness of the Korean media, and serve as
a driving force in promoting the autonomous development
of the media.

December 1995
Koo Ja-kyung
Founder of LG Sangnam Press Foundation
※ “Sangnam” is the nom de plume of the late LG Honorary Chairman Koo Ja-kyung
