Bundang is the southernmost district (gu) of Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. In addition to being the most populous part of the city, it also has the status of being one of the wealthiest regions in Gyeonggi Province. Unlike many other parts of the greater Seoul area, which developed naturally over many years, from the beginning Bundang was designed and built according to a detailed plan. It is a well organized city with well laid-out streets, new apartment buildings, numerous parks and good local infrastructure.
Bundang Central Park is the most famous of the numerous parks in the city. The Tancheon river runs through Bundang. The Seongnam Arts Center is also situated in Bundang. Bundang also has its own subway line which connects the city to the South Korean capital, Seoul.
Bundang has developed to the point where it has become a local political issue whether or not Bundang should become a separate city from the rest of Seongnam. According to its proponents, this would free up tax revenues currently being used in the other districts of the city to go towards public works in Bundang exclusively.
