Media: South Korean feminist magazine to cease publication

After nine years of advocating women's issues, South Korea's feminist magazine "if" is to cease publication. The magazine's publisher however, puts a different perspective on the move. Eam Eul-sun, said -

"Instead of saying 'discontinued' or 'ceased publishing,' we described it as an issuance having been completed, because the magazine fulfilled its readers' requests for the past nine years, and we are going to begin a new journey".

The last April issue will be the 36th since the magazine went into publication in 1997 with the slogan "Smile, overturn and play."
