It is interesting to know that after S Korea announced the nomination of Seowon. Chinese media reported that many Chineses are not happy and consider korea steal their culture and want to protest. Something unusual from the country that control its media, such reports must get consent from chinese government. Let's wait and see what will happen in 2019.

China, Korea, and Japan pay close attention to each others world heritage program.

I doubt the Chinese government actually has a serious problem with this. Korea does not claim Confucian Academies as originating in Korea, simply put the Seowon nomination(s) central argument is that these nine Confucian Academies mark a distinct form of Neo-Confucian ritual and architectural design that emerged during the Joseon period. Moreover, there is an assertion that-rituals and traditions of these Seowon are still alive, while in most (if not all) other East Asian nations, that is not the case.

Comparative Analysis
Confucian academies were first built in China. Chinese academies are known to affect the similar institutions in its neighboring countries such as Korea, Japan and Vietnam, but the tradition in Japan and Vietnam has almost been cut off as of today. What makes the nine Korean Confucian academies distinctive compared to the equivalent of those in China are as follows: - 5 traits that differentiate Korean and Chinese Confucian Academies and traditions are listed

In the end, if China would like to nominate their Confucian Academies, there is nothing preventing them.

The chinese government may not have problem on the site nomination, but it is a part of anti-korea sentiment that rapidly developed in Chinese media especially after THAAD installation. If the chinese government let the sentiment to keep growing by using reason that easily attract nationalists like Korean stealing Chinese culture, we may see those nationalists send a protest letter to UNESCO! It may not jeopardize the nomination, but it will make more work for Korean.

Chinese media reported that many Chineses are not happy and consider korea steal their culture and want to protest.

Thanks for this - it appears that Anti-Korean sentiment in China has impacted and continues to impact on both UNESCO tangible and Intangible nominations made or planned by the 2 countries. But it cuts both ways with China complaining about Korea's views and Korea complaining about those of China!

I have extracted these further examples from the Web of UNESCO related disputes/"spats" between Korea and China - both real and "rumoured" (which can of course stir up nationalistic passions as much as "real" ones) - they might be of interest/of use for future reference.

a. We have in the past commented on the fact that Korea and China were unable to reach agreement on a combined nomination of Koguryo sites which was eventually inscribed separately by each in 2004 - this subject it appears is in fact highly charged with Koreans claiming that China is "muscling" in on its history. See
North-East Project - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast_Project_of_the_Chinese_Academy_of_Social_Scie nces
Koguryeo Controversies - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goguryeo_controversies

b. Another example is China being upset at Korea claiming the Gangneyung Danoje Festival as World Intangible Heritage. China wanted a joint "Dragon Boat Festival" nomination but Korea refused. See https://web.williams.edu/AnthSoc/native/duanwu.htm

c. Another point of contention has been the rumour that Korea wants to register Hangul Characters (derived from Chinese ones) on the Intangible List - http://news.naver.com/main/read.nhn?mode=LSD&mid=sec&sid1=104&oid=001&aid=0001857924

d. And then there is Mount Paekdu. China has registered the Changbia Mountains (which include Mt Paekdu) on its T List ("Vertical Vegetation Landscape and Volcanic Landscape in Changbai Mountain"). S Korea still claims the whole of the mountain (as well as DPRK of course) and that the current de facto border which shares the summit was illegally given away by DPRK in the Korean War. See - http://thediplomat.com/2012/12/baekdu-mountain-chinas-other-territorial-dispute/

These 2 Wiki articles cover the history of cultural Sino-Korean hostility in both "directions" - those of us not versed in the complex interactions between Far Eastern cultures might find them of use/interest!
a. Anti-Korean Sentiment in China - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Korean_sentiment_in_China
(I love the example of "Konghanzheng " = "Fear of Korea Disease" stemming from China's failure to beat Korea at Soccer over many games!)
b. Sinophobia in Korea - (page down to 1.1.2) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinophobia

Hyrkan State Reservation (Azerbaijan)

Does anyone know if the Hyrcanian Forest (Iran) is a joint nomination with Azerbaijan? Because based on this article it seems that was the intention?

This would make sense as the Azerbaijani part was deferred in 2006 to allow for a transnational nomination with Iran.
