Abstract

From the 1960s, a continuous migration to urban areas from rural areas had taken place during the process of rapid industrialisation. Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, was the city that accommodated the largest population in-flows. In 1985, Seoul accounted for 25 per cent of the nation's total population. Exacerbating to the problem of population concentration, the country's educational and financial institutions and other various amenities have also become heavily concentrated in Seoul. The concentration has led to a widening disparity between Seoul and other regions of the country. (The rest omitted)
