There is a plan to build an 80-story tower in Gangnam. If this goes ahead it will be the highest building in South Korea.

The world's tallest skyscraper is currently under construction in Dubai. When completed in 2020, it will be more than 400 m (440 yards) tall - a new record for height. The previous record holder is now only 390 m (400 yards) tall.

Other famous buildings include the Hyundai Center in Seoul, which opened in 1995, and is now one of Asia's largest shopping malls; and the O2 Arena, which hosts major music events such as U2 and Lady Gaga's 2013 concert.

In conclusion, yes, there are many skyscrapers being built in South Korea. They're popular among Koreans because they help people see more of the city. Also, traditional Korean homes are single-story structures with floor heating.
