Sejong City

Sejong City

In early 2007, the Government of South Korea decided to create a special administrative district out of part of the present Chungcheongnam-do Province, near what is presently Daejeon. The new district will be named Sejong Special Autonomous City, and is become the adminstrative capital of the Republic of Korea. The name is a tribute to Sejong the Great, who commissioned Korean scholars to create the Hangul alphabet that is used today instead of traditional Chinese characters.
