An overview of the tritium related research and activities presently undertaken in Korea is presented. These activities encompass the Wolsong Tritium Removal Facility (WTRF) in KHNP, isotope separation, storage and biology in KAERI, KEPRI and KAIST. The design status of the WTRF that serves four CANDU reactors is described. It is made up of three parts; liquid phase catalytic exchange (LPCE), cryogenic distillation, and metal hydride storage. Results from the technological R&D of tritium processing for the WTRF and biology are summarized.
