Korea Times RSS feeds by section


I actually enjoy reading the Korea Times. The articles are sometimes poorly-written, but they do a good job of catering to the dishevelled, wild-eyed expat news junkie. One thing I really do admire in them is that Korean articles my coworkers discuss are, within a day or two, up in English on their site. So it's no surprise that I don't want to miss anything there, and since I love RSS (and their site itself is a bit of a flashy nightmare), what better way?

KT publishes their RSS feeds by section at this page:
http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/common/rss.asp

I've reprinted the table below for your convenience and/or future reference.

    All News    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/rss.xml
    National    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/nation.xml
    Money    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/biz.xml
    Technology    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/tech.xml
    Culture    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/arts.xml
    Sports    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/sports.xml
    Opinion    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/opinion.xml
    World    http://www.ktimes.com/www/rss/speical.xml


One thing to note: that last feed has a typo in the spelling of "special" but manually correct the typo (or click the RSS button) and it delivers the proper feed.

I wish I could get more refined feeds for specific subsections. I also wish I could get just a feed of their Top Stories. It seems like a feed for this does exist at http://koreatimes.co.kr/www/rss/top.xml but the feed is empty.

Maybe play around with the URLs and see if you can find any others. Leave a note in the comments if you do.

Keep RSS alive!
