The Korea Communications Commission (KCC), founded pursuant to the 「Act on the Establishment and Operation of Korea Communications Commission」, is responsible for regulating broadcasting and communications services, protecting their users, and dealing with other matters required for maintaining the independence of broadcasting services. Our mission is to contribute to promoting the freedom, public nature and public interest of broadcasting by actively responding to the convergence between broadcasting and communications sectors.

The key functions of the Commission include: the formulation and implementation of policies pertaining to terrestrial broadcasting, general service and news-only program providers; the investigation and imposition of sanctions against violations conducted by broadcasting or communications business operators; the development and implementation of wide-ranging measures aimed at protecting users and their personal information; preventing the circulation of illegal or harmful information; the arrangement of broadcasting commercials; the formulation and enforcement of policies on programming and evaluation; and the development of policies for media diversification.

The Commission is composed of five standing commissioners including the chairman and the vice chairman. Of the five standing commissioners, two, including the chairman, are directly appointed by the President of the Republic of Korea. The remaining three are nominated by the National Assembly and appointed by the President. The Commission deliberates and resolves key issues according to a consensus-based system.
