This section seeks to highlight some of the coverage of the Jeju Uprising and Massacre published in the island’s first and still only English-language news magazine, The Jeju Weekly. When the paper began in 2008, few English speakers aside from niche academics had ever heard of Jeju’s tragic history. The paper sought to change that by offering comprehensive articles detailing the tragedy and how it continued to shape the island. Most of the paper’s writers were English teachers on Jeju who, like the papers’ readers, also had little knowledge on this period in Jeju’s history. This brought a fresh look to their coverage allowing them to re-examine what happened through Western eyes. Another objective was to create a more accurate picture of Jeju Island than the heavily curated wonderland being sold worldwide by the province’s government.
