This study examined new and old media uses among Korean adolescents and their political engagement including political interest, political knowledge, political talk, and political participation. Korean adolescents’ political media uses are based on four distinct motivations—guidance, surveillance, social utility, and entertainment. Korean adolescents are more likely to engage in politics when they use new and old media to fulfill guidance and social utility needs. The Internet is the dominant medium in the Korean adolescents’ media environment for political engagement.
