The Bank of Korea (BOK) is considering other designs for 100-thousand won bills instead of the Daedongyeojido, a Joseon Dynasty map of the Korean Peninsula.
The central bank originally planned to use the map by Kim Jeong-ho and the Bangudae Petroglyphs in Ulsan for designs for the back side of the bank note.
The issue of 100-thousand won bills will likely be delayed until after the first half of next year.
A senior BOK official said Wednesday that the bank is reconsidering the design due to continued dispute over whether to include the Dokdo islets in the design.
