Russell M. Nelson, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, announced the building of a new temple in Korea.

Busan, Korea

This will be South Korea’s second temple. In 1985, the first was constructed in Seoul. In the country, around 90,000 Latter-day Saints dwell in 100 congregations. The busiest port in Korea is located in Busan, a city in South Korea’s southeast. In the 1940s, Latter-day Saint service men carried Church doctrine to Korea. In 1973, the Seoul Korea Stake was established as the first stake (group of congregations) in continental Asia.
