Korean Top 20 Web Sites

Posted by Channy Yun

What are korean favorite web sites rignt now? I made a chart to compare a result by four research company. Results are as following.

I will briefly introduce them by categories for each websites.

Internet Portal
Naver(Focused on search, NHN’s property), Daum(Mail, community and news), Nate/Cyworld(Social network), Yahoo! Korea(News and search), Emaps(Search), Paran(owned by KT), Dreamwiz.

E-commerce
Auction(owned by Ebay), Gmarket(InterPark’s properties, forcused on auction), Dnshop(Daum’s property, shopping), InterPark(Korean first shopping mall), LG eshop and CJ mall(Cable TV shopping).

Game Portal
Hangame(NHN’s property), NetMarble (CJ Internet’s), Pimang(Neowiz’s Property), Nexon.

Entertainment
SayClub(Chatting, Neowiz’s Property), BuddyBuddy(Teenagers Messenger), Bugs(Streaming music).

Internet Banking
KB Bank and Nonghyup Bank. Most of Korean have a personal certificate for internet banking.

Online Media
Chosun Daily and Joongang Daily(korea newspapers), KBS and MBC (korean broadcasts).

These were refered to as following sources. KoreanClick and InternetMetrix are expert research company, so I think they’re trustable rather than Rankey or Alexa.

Hi. Your chart is not true. I think your chart is sorted by visitors. I am telling you correct information. In KoreanClick, 1st Naver 2nd Daum 3rd Nate. In Rankey, 1st Naver 2nd Nate, 3rd Daum.
