With the wide spread of Social Network Services (SNS), fake news—which is a way of disguising false information as legitimate media—has become a big social issue. This paper proposes a deep learning architecture for detecting fake news that is written in Korean. Previous works proposed appropriate fake news detection models for English, but Korean has two issues that cannot apply existing models: Korean can be expressed in shorter sentences than English even with the same meaning; therefore, it is difficult to operate a deep neural network because of the feature scarcity for deep learning. Difficulty in semantic analysis due to morpheme ambiguity. We worked to resolve these issues by implementing a system using various convolutional neural network-based deep learning architectures and “Fasttext” which is a word-embedding model learned by syllable unit. After training and testing its implementation, we could achieve meaningful accuracy for classification of the body and context discrepancies, but the accuracy was low for classification of the headline and body discrepancies.
