A "floating island" is being built on the Han River in Seoul. The Seoul metropolitan government put in place the basic structure for the first of three artificial floating islands on the river on Saturday.
The city government and a consortium of seven private firms are currently constructing the three islands, injecting more than US$80 million into the project.
Officials say the islands, scheduled to be completed by August, will be recognized as representative landmarks in the city as complexes for performances, conventions, exhibitions and other cultural and sports activities.
