Dream Tower (Korean: 드림 타워) is a 665 m supertall skyscraper proposed to be built in the new Yongsan International Business District, Seoul, South Korea.[1] When completed in 2016, it will surpass the neighboring 640 m supertall Digital Media City Landmark Building, currently under construction in Seoul, as the second-tallest building in the world after Burj Khalifa, also built by South Korean Samsung C&T, the developer of Dream Tower.

With 150 stories, the building will be the centrepiece of the Yongsan Dreamhub, a 28-trillion-won ($22.6-billion) project to be built on the banks of the Han River near Yongsan Station.[1] Demolition of the site started in 2010 and ground breaking was scheduled to start in 2011.[2]
