Probably because it isn't officially completed yet. It would be more advertised once that happens. And it doesn't break any architectural records. And other global cities with supertall skyscrapers may be more well known than Seoul(it's hard to top Dubai, NYC, Hong Kong, Shanghai in terms of notability).

Well, it would be advertised as the Tallest Skyscraper among OCED nations and the first skyscraper over 100 floors in Korea. Seoul may not be well-known due to Western Media focusing mostly on already well developed and money-ed cities, but that's part of the charm that Seoul has
