Korea finds 17th century marine chart depicting Sea of Korea
SEOUL, April 15 (Yonhap) -- South Korea has found a 17th century nautical chart made by a British explorer marking the expanse of water between Korea and Japan as the Sea of Korea.

The chart drawn by Sir Robert Dudley in 1646 was revealed just a week ahead of a general assembly meeting of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) scheduled for April 23 through 27 in Monaco, which may possibly change the name of the waters currently named as the Sea of Japan.
