As of April 2, 2009 it was mentioned in the newspaper The Korea Times
in the article "Eco-Trends of the Year" that
"...the government will soon introduce daylight saving time."
I guess it's only rhetoric at this point.

Eco-Trends of the Year
“The government has launched the ``Green New Deal'' project aimed at nurturing
and supporting industries. As part of the project, the government will soon
introduce daylight saving time and also build a nationwide network of bicycle
paths. Additionally, it announced plans to initiate other projects including
increasing the use of renewable energy such as solar and wind power,
and also replacing all the incandescent light bulbs at public facilities with
more energy-efficient LED bulbs by 2012. "
