A large and pure liquid scintillator detector is a perfect probe of short distance neutrino oscillations
when coupled to properly designed neutrino and anti-neutrino sources. The clean neutrino and
anti-neutrino signal, the small source size, and the proved high precision calibration demonstrated by the SOX project offer a unique tool to asses the existence of low mass sterile neutrinos in an un-ambiguous way. The opportunity to perform such a search at Yemilab is discussed, together with requirement for scintillator purity, detector geometry and neutrino sources. A preliminary plan of actions will also be suggested.
