Seoul's Population Is Dwindling

The population of Seoul is forecast to fall from the present 10 million to less than nine million by 2045.

Statistics Korea on Thursday said the number of citizens in the capital will fall from 9.94 million in 2015 to 8.81 million in 2045.

At present they make up a whopping 19.5 percent of Korea's total population.

The figure has been declining since 2010 as people move to surrounding satellite cities due to rising housing costs and traffic congestion and as state-run corporations and ministries relocated to Sejong City and other parts of the country.

"He did well in school on his own and I feel bad for him having a troublemaker sister like me so I sent him some money. Stop making up rumors".
