“SEOUL, Nov. 28 (Yonhap) — President Lee Myung-bak called on South Koreans Monday to turn off unnecessary lighting, wear warmer underwear and take other voluntary power-saving steps, saying the country could face a shortage of electricity due to soaring demand…

‘Cooperation of all citizens is essential,’ he said.

‘I, for one, have recently lowered the thermostat in the place I work. Naturally, I had to wear warmer underwear which was uncomfortable initially. But after a while, I got used to it, and now I am very warm and comfortable wearing it,’ he said.

‘We can save energy beyond our expectations if we lower the temperature in houses and offices a little, turn off unnecessary lights during the night and use high-efficiency electric appliances,’ he said. ‘I urge businesses, civic organizations and the general public to participate in this campaign voluntarily.’”
