[The Chosun Ilbo, September 11 2007] Koreans May Need E-Passports to Enter U.S.

The U.S. will allow only Koreans with e-passports to enter the country even if Korea joins the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) next year, Korea's foreign affairs and trade ministry said on Monday.
Under the VWP, those with e-passports, which have a chip containing fingerprint and other personal information, will be able to enter the U.S. without a visa. However those without e-passports will have to apply for a visa to enter.

It's a good thing this policy is in place.
