The channel has around 262,000 subscribers and actively posts videos on government policies and current events. It’s the third YouTube account run by South Korea’s government to have been breached in the last two weeks, Korean daily JoongAng Ilbo’s Lee Jian reported.

The identities and motives of those behind the attacks are not immediately known, the paper wrote, citing a statement from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The Korea Tourism Organization’s YouTube channel was breached twice once on Thursday and once on Friday and was suspended until Sunday, JoongAng Ilbo reported.
