Namdaemun(The south gate)
63 building
Jongro Tower(The landmark, especially at Jongro area in Seoul)

I agree with you except for Jongno Tower as a symbolic structures of Seoul.

Namdeamun is quite symbolic to koreans since Joseon dynasty.
It has been the first stucture which people can see clearly when entering to old Seoul. So it was a very the front gate and sign borad saying like "now, you are here in Seoul'. Also, many korean consider the namdaemun something like a living thing, more than a inanimate structure. That's why there was a humanlike funernal for the namdeamun when the namdaemun was burnt down.

As for 63 building, it has been the golden triumph of korea when korea was poor developing contry. It was once the tallest building in asia when it was completed.
Children used to go to picnic there to see IMAX big screen movies and aquarium inside 63 bulding.
It also appeared many times in korean TV drama or movie as background scenes. So 63 bulding was quite famous even after it lost its wow facter as a height anymore.

But Jongro tower has nothing. It still doesn't have much stroies.
So I exclude Jongno tower as symboli of Seoul.

Anyway, Seoul really need a world-famous icon or landmark.

The castle lies near a village (Hohenschwangau), but i would say it's rather a symbol of Germany.
