  • The use of the original name 漢城汉城 (Hànchéng) is dispreferred in both Koreas. The name 首爾首尔 (Shǒu'ěr) was specifically designed for transliterating the Korean name 서울 (Seoul) into modern Standard Chinese and is not a Korean hanja (Sino-Korean) representation of the city name, which doesn't have a hanja form.
