Korean Road and Info signs

Seoul City is seeking the help of its residents - Koreans and foreigners - to note errors in street signs written in foreign languages.

Signs in English, Chinese and Japanese in public places such as subway stations, bus stops, tourist information centers and historic sites are the target.

The city government will start taking details of errors from Sept. 21 to Oct. 4. Reports can be made by email (pss@ktime.com or ghdekadud@gmail.com or visitseoul1@seoul.go.kr) with a picture of the sign and details of its location.

Seoul City will review errors with experts to determine the signs to be corrected. Anyone confused about the names of Korea's traditional or popular places, streets and so forth, should go to http://dictionary.seoul.go.kr, Seoul's official reference website.
