Abstract
This study examines what discourse was composed for freedom of the Korean
press by analyzing related editorials concentrating on private newspapers and
magazines published in the 1920s. After Imperial Japan altered its strategy for the
governance of colonial Korea from Sward Rule to Cultural Rule, the publishment of
private Korean newspapers and magazines were allowed which had been strictly
repressed. Newly rising Korean private newspapers were devoted themselves to
the formation of discourse for expansion of freedom of press against the control
by the Government General of Korea. Editorials of private newspapers and
magazines in the 1920s criticized unreasonable control of Korean press carried out
by the Government General of Korea. The contents of press-related editorials of
Korean private newspapers in the 1920s can be divided into three categories: 1)
Demands for freedom of the press; 2) Demands for anamendment of press-related
laws such as the Newspaper Law and Publication Law, and; 3) Criticism and
protest against administrative and judicial control. The amendment request of
press-related laws and the criticism of the irrational administrative and judicial
control led to the guarantee of freedom of press and formed the antagonistic
discourse against the Government General of Korea which subdued the Korean press.
