Yeah, south korea hasn't got really strong earthquakes so far like Japan or China does.
But it doesn't mean that south korea is perfectly the safe zone.
It is just that Korea was considered a relatively earthquake-free country, compare to Japan.

Recently, an earthquake measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale was detected 33 km off the southern coast of Baeknyeong Island on the West Sea on Tuesday afternoon. It was the 15th of a series of quakes varying in magnitude from 2.1 to 4.9 on the Richter scale off the coast of the island over the last week. The strongest was on Saturday with 4.9.
The latest tremor was felt by residents of Baeknyeong and Socheong islands. According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, a tremor of that magnitude is felt as a small vibration. The KMA said more research of the causes is needed.
Experts believe tectonic shifts may be the reason, while others point to friction as different plates move in opposite directions. "Earthquakes can occur in areas where the land mass is unstable and not necessarily along major fault lines," a KMA official said.

Therefore, we need to prepare the earthquakes just in case.

This thread hadn't been updated in a while, so I went around looking for some shots....









These are from the last two days. The cladding seems to be progressing well, which is great to see! The super columns also seem to be exposed now.

I'm not sure what's happened to Inno, but let's hope he's back soon!

This is absolutely NOTHING TO DO WITH Lotte world tower.
Inno, don't get nasty!
Why do you continuously bring up Seoul mayor topic here again and again.
This is NOT the place for your own nasty agenda. This is the place about Lotte world tower for everyone.
Seoul mayor is not the king of Anti-skyscraper.
Seriously, IBD was cancelled by KORAIL and the other participants , not Seoul mayor. Even a child knows that.
I will not forget and look on idly this time if you continue this stupid actions again and again. You will be sued for defamation.
When will you be grown up?
