Other Jeju News of Note
I have some newly released statistics here about population changes in the Jeju-si area of the island (not Seogwipo).
The Jeju-si population as of October 2016 now stands at about 480,000. This has grown by 10,000 since January 2016.
8,747 Koreans have registered their address here as well as 1,455 foreigners.
A total of 12,357 foreigners now live in Jeju-si.
Population increases in eup areas (more rural) since January 2016
- Chujado has seen 100 people decrease
Population increases in dong areas (more urban) since January 2016
- Samyang-dong and Ara-dong increases can be attributed to large apartment construction projects moving into their completion phases.
