Episodic shoreline retreat often slowed recovery in low frequency periods (weeks or months). The asymmetry between wave energy rise and collapse is closely related to the asymmetry of shoreline advancement and retreat, but the latter is more pronounced due to the different profile adjustment processes. Long-term wave time series data and shoreline time series data were analyzed at Won-pyeong beach located on the east coast of Korea. When waves such as storms come into the beach, the shoreline quickly retreated, and in relatively quiet times, the beach slowly recovered to it's original position. Also, the asymmetry of the shoreline position with respect to time is stronger than that of the wave height. A methodology is proposed here, and the envelope rope curve can be used to predict profile and average shoreline changes in the reference section for erosion steps such as storms.The proposed equation was in good agreement for shoreline asymmetry position, and is satisfactory. Empirical formular are slightly different in the relatively calm period, this is an artificial change formed by external pressure conditions such as artificial nourishment. Several variables were used as correction factors. It`s important for future research to propose standardized correction factors and ranges by applying them at various sites.
