This article in part explains the reasoning of ICOMOS for narrowing down the temples from 7 to 4.

Sansa, Buddhist Mountain Monasteries in Korea (Republic of Korea)

Flickr Album

I've visited Buseoksa and Beopjusa, both are without reservation some of the best examples of Korean Buddhist temples I've seen. Several national treasures, iconic structures dating back to Goryeo, a large six-story wooden pagoda, and exquisite scenery. I only missed Tongdosa because of a downpour! Shame, as its considered one of the most unique temples and is quite famous in Korea. I cannot speak for Seonamsa and Bongjeongsa having never been, but I did visit Magoksa. I enjoyed my visit to this temple on the outskirts of Gongju, the pagoda is very unique, but I would agree with ICOMOS it does "lack historical value" in comparison with the 4 recommended components.

Strong "negotiating skills" will be applied in order to sway the UNESCO Committee.

Anyway, the moment of truth that we wait for every year is arriving. I am going to have next week a crazy amount of work to do, but I hope to cope with seeing the ICOMOS and IUCN recommendations by next weekend. As always I am very much for Asian sites and, particularly the Chinese and Iranian sites that we do not still know about the recommendations.

I previously reported on this months back, but its all official now. IUCN did evaluate referred nominations below.

Mexico, Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley: originary habitat of Mesoamerica (referred in 2017) (mixed site)
France, Chaîne des Puys - Limagne fault tectonic arena (referred in 2016)

And ICOMOS did the same with quite a number of sites:
- Pimachiowin Aki (Canada)
- Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley (mixed site, Mexico)
- Thimlich Ohinga Archaeological Site (Kenya)
- Khor Dubai, a Traditional Merchants' Harbour (UAE)
- Naumburg Cathedral (Germany)
