All units in Celsius:

I'd say that in the middle of the winter, on average the temperature is between -5 and -10 degrees. It can fall to about -15, but there are also days when the temperature is around 0. But from mid december to early february, you can be sure that precipitations will be snowfalls and not rain.

The Korean winter is very dry, and since precipitation in Korea mostly comes during the summer, winter is usually pretty sunny. But when it snows, the snow stays on for a long time, so even if it only snows a couple of days or weeks per year, the odds are that from late December to late February, the ground will be covered by snow/ice.

So yeah, you should wear very warm clothing.

Yesterday morning got down to as low as -7C. It's been a bit cold for the last few days haha. I'm wondering if Han River will freeze this year. It hasn't for the last two or so.

Just like corporate marketing campaigns, national tourism from time to time launch a new brand. I think thats nothing unusual, inno

"I seoul you" may sound ridiculous but in marketing silly things sometimes work better than normal things. So to justify the efficiency of the new brand we have to wait for the official results after a period of implementation

The next slogan for seoul could be "lwt you!" Lol. when ppl in the world hear it they get curious they google "wtf is lwt" and they find out a beautiful supertall with an awesome skybridge, they'll come to enjoy the views

right
In ordinary situation your comment 100% right.

But in this I.SEOUL.U case must understanding of now mayor's history.
I say before Many times about this mayor's "CITY-SKYSCRAPER POLICY" SERIOUS PROBLEM
He dismiss countless project of seoul which propose/prepare project by former mayor.
same this slogan too.
Seoul has brand with "HI SEOUL"&"SOUL OF AISA" for long time. Former mayor advertisement this brand in the world. But suddenly he erase those brand and changed to "i seou u"
I don;t want to comment whether this brand efficient or not.

Think about someday NY city changed their city brand from I♥NY to another one? samsung changed their brand logo from samsung to I SAM U? whenever their head changed then brand changed to another then brand consistency lost. Same seoul too. Seoul no need changed traditional brand HI SEOUL. Just now mayor's opinions city brand changed? then what next new mayor this hate "I SEOUL U" then changed to another new one?

There are 5 emergency floors where people can take refuge in case of disasters.
They all have life-saving equipment and emergency elevators going straight to the ground.




floor plan of an emergency zone






Oxygen masks and flashlights (same like in evry subwaystation in Seoul)




Lots of space and a doctor if someone needs medical attention immediately







some more life saving equipment

Those safety areas are on floor 22, 40, 60, 83 and 102.

"I love you" i guess. Seoul stands for love.

In the world of hi tech today all things (computers, phones, tv, cars etc) are getting smart, even stupid people are getting a bit smarter. Lol. thats why silly things sometimes can get hot, even extremely hot. The most popular phrase that come from korea to the world probably is " oppa gangnam style". It is clearly not queen's english. Goddamn it
