Sejong (Korean pronunciation: [se(ː).dʑoŋ]; Korean: 세종; Hanja: 世宗), officially Sejong Special Autonomous City (세종특별자치시; 世宗特別自治市), is a special autonomous city in South Korea. Sejong was founded in 2007 as the new national capital of South Korea from territory of South Chungcheong and North Chungcheong provinces to ease congestion in South Korea's current capital and largest city, Seoul, and encourage investment in the country's central region. Since 2012, the Government of South Korea has relocated numerous ministries and agencies to Sejong, but many still reside in other cities - principally Seoul where the National Assembly and many important government bodies remain.

  • Sejong (Korean pronunciation: [se(ː).dʑoŋ]; Korean: 세종; Hanja: 世宗), officially Sejong Special Autonomous City (세종특별자치시; 世宗特別自治市), is a special autonomous city in South Korea. Sejong was founded in 2007 as the new national capital of South Korea from territory of South Chungcheong and North Chungcheong provinces to ease congestion in South Korea's current capital and largest city, Seoul, and encourage investment in the country's central region. Since 2012, the Government of South Korea has relocated numerous ministries and agencies to Sejong, but many still reside in other cities - principally Seoul where the National Assembly and many important government bodies remain. Sejong has a population of 281,120 (2017) and covers a geographic area of 465.23 km2 (179.63 sq mi), making it the least-populous and smallest first-level administrative division in South Korea. Sejong is located in the west-central Hoseo region, bordering South Chungcheong to the west, Daejeon Metropolitan City to the south, and North Chungcheong to the east. The construction of the city should be completed in 2030. In the same year, all government institutions should be moved to Sejong. About 500,000 people should live there in 2030. (en)
