 Nuclear power plants under special inspection ahead of summer peak power season
If this early hot weather is any indication this summer will suck a lot of energy out of the nation's power grid
So the government and the nuclear energy industry are taking pre-emptive steps to prevent power shortages.
The nation's nuclear power plants have been undergoing a special inspection this month separate from regular check-ups.
Last summer, several nuclear reactors went offline either due to regular inspections or because they were found to have used parts with forged safety certificates.

Korea has a total of 23 nuclear reactors which provide around one-third of the nation's total energy supply.
