Can you pick out a skyscraper in Seoul that inspires others by size or design sophistication? I just can't think of any...
No. The closest right now is probably the 63 Building, and that's more because it's iconic than anything else. If Seoul wants to be a "design city", it's got to be willing to be inventive and original. Here's to hoping the 77-story building is a super crazy design.

Now negociation with Seoul Goverment and Seoul Lite Inc.

-Dead line is 28, August.
-Seoul Lite Inc proposed 2 options
First proposal construct to 100 floors land mark tower and Two other 55 floors residences
Second proposal construct to 77 floors land mark tower and Two other 55 floors residences.

-Seoul goverment persist on 133 floors land mark tower.

Maybe .....After lengthy talks the two sides finally reached a compromise!

Hopefully Seoul have 4(IBD/LOTTE/GBC/SEOUL LITE) 100floors.

In my opinion even the 100 floors are a dissapointment. I agree with the government, I want 133 floors

But this (unfortunately) shows how unprofitable really tall buildings are. This is government here who wants taller building not business people.

Guys, 77 floors would still make it one of the tallest buildings in the city. I'd be very happy to see something this height equivalent (probably around 330m?) go up.

A ray of hope but what is this negotiation on building height? Tell the greedy passionless commie apartment lovers to get the hell out.

YEAP. Supertalls need a big money rather than common building.

Right. 77 floors is one of the tallest building in Seoul.

I'm also sick and tired with commie apartment.
GBC/IBD/LOTTE is located in EAST seoul. Otherwise west seoul is stricted by airplane heights. So unbalance skyline compare east with west.
So Seoul lite have to built over 100floors.

I don't think that's really true. Sangam-dong, where this is supposed to be built, isn't too far west of Yeouido, right across the river and a major area of skyscraper development. I still think that it would be better for Seoul to pursue smaller (in height), more extensive (in area), and more design-oriented development than trying to compete on height and floor count alone. After all, most cities can't make a case for multiple 100+ floor-buildings, but for a city like Seoul it's very easy to make a case for fifty 20-floor buildings that all happen to feature original and fascinating architecture. After all, Seoul was 2010's Global Design City, not its 2010 Global Tallest Buildings City, and I think that that's just fine.

I don't have anything against 20 floor buildings, however, without a leader they would look just like a pile of crates. They need a leader and with leader I mean a supertall This is the recipe for an awesome skyline in my opinion

gives us a nice idea of the future, but the buildings' designs are well outdated! I kinda wish the buildings were not quite as spread out as well...

Agree with your opinion.
Seoul supertalls are spread out. Dubai is planned city. Otherwise seoul's skyline is redevelopment....At that reason skyline is spread out.(very saddly)

As I am seoul citizens, seoul's commie apartment and outdated design is not my taste. This is time for innovation building design.

nice, but these supertalls are like monoliths in the landscape. I agree that they fit better in a cluster.

I think it's worth noting that those heights are exaggerated by about 33%. The top of Seoul Tower on top of Namsan is 499m high, so only Lotte Tower would look anything like that size from this perspective.
