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.
