The Seoul Shinmun (translating to The Seoul Newspaper) is the oldest daily newspaper in South Korea with more than a century of publication. Its original name was Daehan Maeil Sinbo (The Korea Daily News), which was started on July 18, 1904, and was renamed Daily News (Maeil Sinbo) in August 1910. The publication's current name was adopted in November 1945.

Circulation is an estimated 780,000 issues a day.

The Seoul Shinmun was also the nation's only daily until 1920, when The Dong-a Ilbo debuted.
