The government on Monday unveiled a draft design for Korea's new passport, which will be used from 2020.
In the new design, the cover will shed its green color, which has been used for 32 years, and change to navy.
Each page will include illustrations of Korea's cultural heritage.
The passport numbers will be longer and the resident registration numbers will be removed to prevent theft of personal data.
The government will announce the final design in December, after gauging public opinion.
