Korea’s president stated he has cut down electricity usage in his office and started wearing thermal underwear in an effort to save energy.

Lee Myung-Bak disclosed the warm underwear was uncomfortable initially but got used to it after a while.

South Koreans have been asked to limit their usage of electricity during the winter by turning off unnecessary lighting and wearing warm underwear.

A brief blackout in September affected more than two million homes in South Korea and he has declared all citizens to cooperate to avoid power shortages in the future.

Big companies have been told to cut their usage of power by 10% compared to a year earlier during peak days.
