quick report from the Korea Herald
while I work on compiling some other blogposts. We foreigners make up 2.4% of Seoul - but read on for plenty of details:
The number of foreign residents in Seoul as of the end of last year reached 255,000, according to the city's e-Seoul Statistics, published yesterday. The corresponding figure in 1998 was 51,000.
Among all 152 nationalities, 192,618 (75.5 percent) of the foreign residents were Chinese, followed by the United States with 12,821 (5 percent), Taiwan with 8,818 (3.5 percent) and Japan with 6,840 (2.7 percent).
