For a long time, public toilets were considered to be unclean areas. Mr Sim Jae-duck always had a profound interest in the environment and culture. During his time as mayor of Suwon City, he keenly felt the necessity of improving toilets while promoting match events for the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea. In 1996, Suwon City declared its intent to build the most beautiful public toilets in the world and executed the Toilet Culture Movement. Furthermore, he managed to establish the nation’s first department devoted exclusively to toilets in order to administer public toilet improvement. Suwon’s Beautiful Toilet Culture Campaign paved the way for toilets to be reinvented as cultural spaces. They were no longer a place to go and take of one’s “business”, but a place where people could meditate, rest, view exhibitions and feel reinvigorated afterwards.
