Abstract

Korea has experienced a brief period of high turnover of ideas and reform proposals in the medical law field, which is undergoing a significant transformation in both the clinical and research settings as a result of technological innovations. Just as it seemed a new research regime had been agreed through the combination of the Bioethics and Biosafety Amendment Bill, and the Reproductive Cells Utilisation and Supervision Bill, politics intervened. These proposals, were abandoned and the 'wholesale amendment' of a legal regime that had failed so dramatically to curb the excesses and dishonesty of the 'Hwang era' was abandoned with them.
