A resident who opposes construction of power transmission towers for ultra-high-voltage power lines, wears a T-shirt at a village of Miryang, 250 km (155 miles) southeast of Seoul, September 3, 2013. Protests in Miryang have held up about a third of a planned 90 kilometres of power line - supported by a total 161 towers - that would connect KEPCO's new Shin Kori No. 3 and No. 4 reactors and balance supply in the heavily industrial southeast. Opponents argue the towers will hurt asset values, harm the natural environment and cause cancers. South Korea faces possible power blackouts this winter and next summer, as cable safety issues and protests that are holding up completion of an ultra-high-voltage power line threaten to keep more nuclear reactors offline.
