I wonder what construction method this building will use. Will it's steel frame rise first like in the case of the WTC towers or will the core rise first?

Actually, it's the densest major metro area in all of the OECD countries. It's just a really big city that doesn't have a single center. Jongno-gu north of Namsan, Gangnam-gu (which means literally south of the river) and Yeongdeung-po are all sort of city centers in their own right, and developments like this tower in Songpa-gu (to the east of Gangnam) and the Yongsan IBD (labelled Seoul IBD in the picture above) pull the aim of a single central district for Seoul all over the place.

with the almost megatalls being so much spread around the city it will most likely be always one of them in the background visible on pictures of seoul but it also is quite sad that it wont be possible to capture all of them in one picture.

Are you sure?
By the first glance, Tokyo is far more denser and have multiple city centers than Seoul. Seoul is definitely huge but you can't compare it yet to Tokyo.

maybe,I think if Yongsan IBD is completed, Seoul will outperform Tokyo Area.

Actually, I think it is officially Seoul....but that goes to what we talk about when we say "city"....I have no idea what criteria they use.

If you look at Wikipedia at least, Seoul has the densest city proper in the OECD, and if you look at the Seoul National Capital Area, which includes Seoul, Incheon, and Gyeonggi-do (which includes multiple other cities like Bucheon, Suwon, UIjeongbu, Seongnam, etc.), Seoul and Tokyo are about tied for density. The only reason the Tokyo metro seems bigger is because it's a much larger area.

I think the reason Tokyo looks so much bigger is because it has a main skyscraper cluster (by the bay), and it's on a fairly flat piece of land, whereas Seoul is all hilly, nevemind being in sort of a basin which visually cuts it off from the rest of Gyeonggi-do.

It's not that hard at all. A simple Google or Flickr search is more than enough. Didn't you once say you had never seen a picture of Hong Kong's skyline? Yeah... You probably shouldn't talk about skylines if the only one you have an idea about is New York's.

Well, now I have already seen quite a few pictures of Hong Kong's skyline. But I might have not seen pictures showing both ICC and 2IFC so I apologize if I'm wrong
