For a while yet the lack of population growth will probably be offset by social changes -

more and more young people are choosing to move out from their parents house before they're married

Fewer old people are moving in with their kids

Combined with deterioration of old, quickly built buildings growth isn't set to stop anytime soon but isn't sustainable without an increase in births or becoming immigrantfriendly.

btw. on the other side of the small river the Hyundai HQ was supposed to be built. Unfortunately not permitted by the mayor

I wanted to post pictures of those buildings today, but you were quicker
When I was student at Hanyang University (next to those buildings) I watched them rise slowly.
Back then they already looked quite massive from Wangshimni area, as everything elese around there is quite low.

Right. Unfortunately, having children in Korea seems very expensive (university fees, hagwons, etc.), so thats not really a good motivation to have more than 1-2 children

Here in central Europe we can mostly sustain our population thanks to immigrants, locals usually don't have more than 1-2 children. I think this might also be the case for Korea in the future.

Yeah, I lived there for a few years so can understand. I worked with women whose husbands made a good living but they also worked pretty much up until they gave birth.

요즘은 교육 비싸졌어요.. 제가 학원에서 일했고 잘 알아요. 영어학원, 중국어학원, 미술학원, 수학학원..

But changing living conditions will mean more building for a few years, especially if the trend of moving into the cities continues

That pocket park planned for the front of the Four Seasons hotel really improves the streetscape of Gwanghwamun

Park Seals Second Term with Clear Election Win

Park Won-soon of the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy defeated conservative candidate Chung Mong-joon in the Seoul mayor election Wednesday.

Turnout among Seoul’s 8.4 million voters was 58.6 percent.

[more]

Not looking good for Seoul skyscraper fans...

Man, Itaewon with no military base at the end of the street. That's going to take some getting used to.

Still it will be GREAT to have an open public green space there instead of a gated military facility.

The downside: Itaewon will lose even more of its edginess and become even more commercialised than it has been over the last decade and, I fear, eventually be indistinguishable from the other commercial hubs of Seoul.

Well, hopefully Mayor Park will stop that sort of thing from happening, though I have to say I'm not terribly optimistic. I think Park was the right choice over Chung, but he still isn't as radical as he should be, or at least not radical in the most productive way.

I have heard Lee Kun Hee owns large swathes of land in Itaewon. If Samsung is responsible for the redevelopment you can be sure it will become a soulless, generic, over-commercialised, homogenous wasteland.

Itaewon is one of the few distinct business districts in Seoul. But as rents increase it's losing its unique flavour fast. Authentic ethnic eateries and merchants being replaced by yet another Olive Young or Misha.

I think a lot of people--citizens, government officials, and big business owners alike--share Inno's attitude toward Seoul: that there's no charm in the city's smaller, more intimate areas, and that there are no older areas in the city worth preserving, which as you've said, is a real shame. Those are the areas that give a city the opportunity to provide unique, interesting, and personal experiences.
