In Seoul, Korea’s traditional and modern cultures coexist. Geographically, it is an extraordinary example of a good location, as mountains, rivers and urban spaces all combine to produce a picture-perfect city. As of the end of 2012, Seoul had a population of 10,442,426 people of a total of 4,177,970 households. This represented roughly a quarter of the population of the Republic of Korea, despite the small size of the city accounting for less than 1 percent of the country’s area. The city held the limelight worldwide in June 2002, when jointly hosting the World Cup finals best characterized by the national squad’s miraculous advancement to the semifinals and a nationwide cheering campaign of the “red devils”. The tremendous red-clad crowds which gathered at Seoul Plaza to root for the South Korean team impressed the whole world with their pure enthusiasm and passion, which they radiated for the country they represented. 19
