Abstract

This study examines journalism's decisive contribution to the emergence and development of fiction during the Enlightenment Period in Korea.

Instead, reporters composed fiction in order to promote enlightenment and modernization, and newspapers incorporated fiction into journalism in order to promote sales. Early fiction thus functioned as a form of journalism.
