Growing concerns over nuclear radiation have been underscored since Japan started pumping contaminated water back into the Pacific Ocean. The Tokyo Electric Power Company has been using sea water to cool down the facility and prevent meltdowns. It has been storing the water as it became contaminated.

But it has run out of storage capacity and thousands of tons still need to be pumped into the ocean. That amount is equivalent to five Olympic size swimming pools. Some experts insist the low-level radioactive water will pose no health hazard to people, but still this has raised wide spread concern in the neighboring area.

Now let's find out the reaction from South Korea from our correspondent U Jean Jung, in Seoul. Hello U-Jean.

Q1: What's the radiation level in South Korea?

Q2: How have the public and the government been responding?
