Abstract

The socioeconomic concentration in the Seoul Metropolitan Area(SMA) has been one of the most important causes of the rapid urbanization in Korea. On the other side, the population concentration in the Seoul Metropolitan Area has been the cause of the accelerated economic growth. The consistent growth of the population in Seoul, however, has resulted in many social problems due to the over-urbanization. This may indicate that the policy of unequal development focusing on the Seoul Metropolitan Area would be successful up to a certain point. However, this kind of unequal development policy cannot continue unlimitedly. It should be limited to a certain extent. Not the unlimited growth but the sustainable development should be accomplished for the healthy future of a country.
