The Korean Treebank Annotations Version 2.0 is an extension of the Korean English Treebank Annotations corpus, LDC2002T26 (2002). It is essentially an electronic corpus of Korean texts annotated with morphological and syntactic information. The original texts for the Korean Treebank 2.0 were selected from The Korean Newswire corpus published by LDC, catalog number LDC2000T45, which is a collection of Korean Press Agency news articles from June 2, 1994 to March 20, 2000. Korean Treebank 2.0 is based on the March 2000 portion of the corpus and includes 647 articles. The annotated corpus can find many uses, including training of morphological analyzers, part-of-speech taggers and syntactic parsers.

The text is encoded as KSC-5601(EUC-KR). Version 1.1 of the treebank is included in this release.
