This chapter discusses the endogenous dynamics of urban renewal in Seoul, South Korea, and terms it ‘renewal-induced gentrification’. Seoul has been witnessing one of the world’s most aggressive residential renewal programmes, which have focused on maximizing landlord profits rather than on improving the housing welfare of low-income residents who have been displaced from their neighbourhoods.
