Though one province has committed to ending coal power, South Korea has no national phase-out target 

This country study and accompanying data sheet compile publicly available information on G20 subsidies to the production and consumption of coal (including coal-fired power) in South Korea in 2016 and 2017. It is a background paper to the report G20 coal subsidies: tracking government support to a fading industry and provides a baseline to track progress on the phase-out of such subsidies as part of a wider global energy transition.
