List Of Districts Of Seoul
The DISTRICTS (GU) OF SEOUL are the twenty-five gu ("districts"; 구; 區) comprising Seoul , South Korea . The gu vary greatly in area (from 10 to 47 km²) and population (from less than 140,000 to 630,000). Songpa is the most populated, while Seocho has the largest area. Gu are similar to London 's or New York 's boroughs or Tokyo 's 23 special wards , and a gu's government handles many of the functions that are handled by city governments in other jurisdictions. This city-like standing is underscored by the fact that each gu has its own legislative council , mayor and sister cities . Each gu is further divided into dong or neighborhoods. Some gu have only a few dong while others (like Jongno-gu ) have a very large number of distinct neighborhoods

List Of Sovereign States
This LIST OF SOVEREIGN STATES provides an overview of sovereign states around the world , with information on their status and recognition of their sovereignty . Membership within the United Nations
United Nations
system divides the 206 listed states into three categories: 193 member states , two observer states , and 11 other states. The _sovereignty dispute_ column indicates states whose sovereignty is undisputed (190 states) and states whose sovereignty is disputed (16 states, out of which there are 6 member states, 1 observer state and 9 other states). Compiling a list such as this can be a difficult and controversial process, as there is no definition that is binding on all the members of the community of nations concerning the criteria for statehood . For more information on the criteria used to determine the contents of this list, please see the _criteria for inclusion _ section below. The list is intended to include entities that have been recognized to have _de facto_ status as sovereign states, and inclusion should not be seen as an endorsement of any specific claim to statehood in legal terms

Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Timezones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (for example Newfoundland Standard Timeis UTC−03:30, NepalStandard Timeis UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Timeis UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones . This also creates a permanent daylight saving time effect

Korea Standard Time
Time in South Korea is given by KOREA STANDARD TIME (KST; ( Hangul : 한국 표준시; Hanja : 韓國標準時; RR : Hanguk pyojunsi) or also known to some as SEOUL TIME ( Hangul : ) is 9 hours ahead of UTC (UTC+09:00 ): i.e., when it is midnight (00:00) UTC , it is 9 am (09:00) Korea Standard Time. South Korea does not observe daylight saving time , but experimented with it during the 1988 Seoul Olympics . Korea Standard Time is the same as Japan Standard Time , Indonesian Eastern Standard Time and Yakutsk Time . North Korea was also on Korea Standard Time, but in August 2015 adopted Pyongyang Standard Time , which is 30 minutes behind. HISTORYBefore modern clocks were introduced into Korea, Koreans kept time with the help of a sundial during the daylight time and a water clock at night. In 1434, Jang Yeong-sil , a Joseon scientist and astronomer with other scientists, developed Korea's first sundial, Angbu Ilgu (앙부일구/仰釜日晷) and was put into service as standard time-keeper of the kingdom and began the standard time at Hanyang ( Seoul ) which calculated to UTC+08:28. In 1442, Chiljeongsan , an astronomical calendar system that was created during the reign of King Sejong used Hanyang (Seoul) local time as its standard as it overcame the limitations of previous-made calendars

Gil-dong
GIL-DONG is a dong , neighbourhood of Gangdong-gu in Seoul , South Korea . Exit 1 leads to many different love motels, hoffs, and norae bangs. In this direction it is about 2 km to the Han River. There is also a Paris baguette and a cafe bene on this side. Exit 2 and 3 lead to the post office and a large Korean market. Along the main road on this side of the street, there is a home plus, a dunking doughnuts, a 3 floor "dollar store" daiso and many Korean restaurants. There are also many dentists and more norae bangs that you can imagine. On the same street as the post office is a typical outdoor Korean market, made up of mostly fruit, vegetable, fish and ddok sellers. It has become more gentrified lately and shops such as "The Face Shop" have moved in. This market runs the length of gil-dong on this back street. This area back from the main road is made up of many small one-way streets with many villas and traditional Korean houses lining them. Gil-dong has the feel of an older, poorer Korean neighbourhood. There are lots of families and people riding bikes and buying groceries. The area is starting to change though, and newer high rises are being built up near the gildong/gangdong intersection. The area has relatively few hagwons , and hardly any foreigners living here
