South Korea considers first nudist beach
The idea was put forward by the East Sea-Rim Headquarters (ESRH) - a department of the government in the eastern province of Gangwon - but is already receiving protests from the public, officials said on Wednesday.
The proposal envisages opening a nudist area by 2017 to attract more foreign visitors to a province known for its sandy beaches.
"We see this project as part of our efforts to promote tourism," an ESRH official said.
Despite its rapid modernisation, South Korea remains a largely conservative country and the official said the plan would need the approval of local residents.
"Without their consent, it will be difficult to push ahead," she told AFP. "In fact, we've already received protest calls from some residents since the project was reported."
The idea of a nudist beach was first mooted in 2005 but was swiftly discarded because of public opposition.
