Mini-Capital Utopia, Built from Scratch

Sejong-si, officially titled as Sejon Special Autonomous City, is the only special autonomous city in Korea. Sejong City was officially launched in 2012, with the name originating from King Sejong the Great. It borders both North and South Chungcheong Provinces, with Daejeon in the South. It was founded with the purpose of easing congestion and concentration in the current capital city Seoul. Since 2012, the government did relocate most of its facilities to Sejong, but many still reside with in Seoul (especially the important government bodies such as the National Assembly)

 

Sejong is perceived as a quiet city, with a population of only 280,000 people. It is only a 40 minute distance from Seoul by the train, but many people consider it remote and distant. One interesting fact is that Sejong has a higher population proportion of children, than other cities.
