The objective of this study is to interpret the meanings of key topics shown in keywords about intimate partner violence by comparing the progressive media (The Hankyoreh, The Kyunghyang Shinmun) and the conservative media (The Chosun Ilbo, The Donga Ilbo) according to the political tendency targeting the intimate partner violence.

Selecting total 450 cases including 244 cases in the progressive media and 206 cases in the conservative media, reported from January 1st 2014 to December 31st 2019, this study extracted five topics each by using the LDA(Latent Dirichlet Allocation)- based topic modeling. In the results of topic modeling analysis, the intimate partner violence was formed into common topics about violent criminalization, reinforcement of investigation, and non-consent circulation of sexual video in progressive newspapers and conservative newspapers. As differentiated topics, the progressive newspapers drew the violation of a right of sexual self-determination and the support measures for gender violence while the conservative newspapers drew the patriarchybased hatred culture and strong legislation as topics.
