Do you like being one with the nature in your most earnest form -- buck naked? If so, you will jump out of your seat to hear that Korea is about to get its first 'nudist colony', or if you prefer a naturist park.
According to Korea Times, a 'nudist forest' is getting ready to open in late August in Jangheung, Jeollanam-do. A shocking fact is that the 'nudist forest' is the product of hard work by the local county government office. One of the officials was quoted in the article saying, "We will soon complete construction of the facilities and people can enjoy nature and release stress in the nude." We know for sure that Korea is home to some of the most stressed people in the world. Perhaps this is exactly what the surgeon general of Korea ordered.
I have personally never been to a 'nude beach' or 'nude colony' but I've read and heard that it is usually populated with the old and the wrinkly. Well, I am dying to hear what a Korean 'nudist colony' will be like. Should anyone be daring enough to give the place a try when it opens, let us know.
