Nicknamed the "Miracle on the Han," Seoul is an intoxicating fusion of the traditional and cutting edge.

In the 20th century, Seoul emerged as a world capital, catapulted by the country's explosive economic growth following the Korean War. Now a 24-hour metropolis, Seoul has become famous for its futuristic architecture, K-Pop (Korean pop music), and culinary traditions.
