A great combination. The first photo is spectacular. The top four tallest buildings in Seoul in one shot.
Thanks!!

It is a great picture, but there are actually quite a few other >200m buildings in Seoul that are taller than the other SIFC buildings, like the Mokdong Hyperion complex, the Tower Palace buildings, and the Seoul Trade Tower. I'm also very curious about the tall buildings in the left foreground of that picture.

Any info, inno?

I'll tell you Aquaticko, those make the Samsung tower palace complex. I'm 90% sure of that. Anyone can disapprove my speculation?
That's why I said 3 of the 4 tallest buildings in Seoul were spotted in one shot. Only Mokdong Hyprion (840 f - 256 m) is missing.

That is designed by IESD inc architecture company. Probably influenced by Calatrava's design style.

No, those are way back in Seocho; we'd have to see a lot of Gangnam in order to see the Tower Palace complex and Yeouido at the same time. This photo was taken from across the Han River.

Aaah, thanks Aquaticko, I wasn't aware of that. Also the complex's composition looks in a way or another the same as in the tower palace. They look tall as well. I was fooled :p.

Can I answer your question?
I notice and am surprised that you know so many things about Korea.
In some ways, you have much better than some ordinary koreans around me. I will call you a korean expert.

Those towers in the left foreground in this picture are Seokyo Xi(Recently the name was changed "Mecenatpolis")
The tallest tower of Seokyo Xi is around only 190m, not that tall actually.
It just looks taller because of nearer to the lens of the camera. The nearer looks taller!

This picture shows the cluster of Seokyo Xi(Recently Mecenatpolis), which consists of only 4 towers in the right side of the picture. Also, these towers are located in Northwest of Seoul

But the cluster of Samsung Tower palace are much bigger and taller which is located in Southeast of Seoul.
