ABSTRACT

Genetic researchers in South Korea have been critical of the nation’s Personal Information Protection Act since its inception, concerned that it would interfere with valuable research. Personal information on medical care and health conditions is required for genetic research. However Article 18 of the Personal Information Protection Act severely limits the ability of genetic researchers to carry out their work. This article argues on the basis of the public benefits derived from genetic research that there should be exceptions for the purpose of genetic research to Article 18 of the Personal Information Protection Act.
