As the theory of elite continuity has indicated, the incumbent press continued its domination in Korea’s political transition; however, media reformers have tried to challenge the current situation. This paper primarily focuses on the issues of (1) how press development is like and the continuation of its domination, (2) types of policy alternatives which the media reform groups proposed and (3) in the tug-of-war between the progressive and conservative forces, how the Press Law was changed afterwards. According to the analyses of this paper, under the authoritarian rule, the Korean press had been protected and developed into oligopoly. After deregulation, with firm base the incumbents won the competition by unfair practices. To dismantle this oligopoly, media reformers have followed a “radical market approach” and proposed an alternative press policy. Some of their ideas were brought into the new Press Law after long confrontation and negotiations. Hence, the conclusion is that the continuities of media power in political transition still exits; however, by proposing policy alternatives and taking actions, media reform groups could become an important force.
