Abstract

This article examines the role of the Internet in political participation in South Korea. It reveals that the Internet brought majority of the voters into the political process and produced a more fact-based election process in South Korea. It also reveals that Internet accessibility has become a stronger factor to explain increased voter participation. This article suggests that the rapid diffusion of Internet along with broadband connections have contributed to the increased use of Internet among young voters.
