|It is the capital city and the largest city in Korea.|
It was the 14th century Joseon Dynasty that the city became the capital of the Korean Peninsula in earnest.
The city's name was Hanyang in the past.
In the early 20th century, it was colonized by the Japanese Empire and changed its name to Gyeongseong.
After Korea's liberation from Japanese colonial rule, the name of the city was changed to 'Seoul' and was occupied by the communist forces twice during the Korean War.
After the war, Seoul grew into a huge metropolitan city thanks to the rapid economic development called the 'Miracle on the Han River.'
