Update - Traditional Buddhist Mountain Temples of Korea (Republic of Korea)

Chosun Online (Korean Daily in Japanese edition) report that Korean Cultural Heritage Administration requests the nomination committee of Traditional Buddhist Mountain Temples of Korea to re-submit more information especially the OUV compare to large temples in China and Japan. The committee raises concern on this matter as they need more time to gather information, and if they can not make it on time, no site from Korea in 2018.

I think this is obviously a recognition of what the 2016 Seowon nomination failed to do in regards to comparative analysis and justification for the serial component approach. The Seowon nomination (9 components) is somewhat similar to the Buddhist Mountain Temple nomination (7 components), and an extensive comparative analysis is certainly expected by ICOMOS.

Certainly we do not know for sure, and I would not be surprised if it was delayed. However, for the first year I am aware of there has been several articles that indicate 2018. Based on reports on this website, the nomination has been active since at least 2015. Hopefully it will be submitted for 2018!

Well! since the Japanese already put the site in the tentative list so I think we can include it in WHS 2018. Not sure that it is still allow to nominate 1 cultural site and 1 natural site? If it is not allow then I think it will move to 2019.

Amami-Oshima Island, Tokunoshima Island, the northern part of Okinawa Island and Iriomote Island (Japan) seems likely now.
