On October 2, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Busan Korea Temple at the October 2022 General Conference. It will be the second temple in South Korea. The first was completed in Seoul in 1985. Nearly 90,000 Latter-day Saints in 100 congregations live in the country. The southeastern city of Busan is Korea’s busiest port. Latter-day Saint service members brought the Church’s teachings to Korea in the 1940s. In 1973 the Seoul Korea Stake, the first stake in mainland Asia, was organized.1
