Seongbuk-dong is a dong, neighbourhood of Seongbuk-gu in Seoul, South Korea.[1][2]

Seongbuk-dong is an attractive village to the north of Seoul, nestled in the hills overlooking the city. A large proportion of the residences are owned by wealthy households. It is also where many ambassadorial residences are located (among them, the residences of the Chinese, Australian and Canadian ambassadors). A significant proportion of the village population is made up by foreigners - or foreigners married to Koreans.
