When was the last time you heard the word “MySpace” from Murdoch? Exactly. Any trip he makes these days turns out to be about, well, what else, paid content. This one, for instance, to South Korea: he is there and will meet senior execs at Samsung and LG (SEO: 066570), reports Reuters, with local media reporting he would discuss selling news and movie content through Samsung’s broadband TVs. Among the people he is slated to meet: Choi Gee-sung, head of digital media at Samsung, and LG CEO Nam Yong. Recent changes in regulatory rules in the country means print companies can expand into broadcast; other deregulation moves are also expected, which would make it easy for foreign companies to work in the broadband-heavy country.
