A dong (neighborhood) is the smallest level of urban government to have its own office and staff in Korea. In the Republic of Korea, two types of dong exist, administrative and legal-status neighborhoods; in some cases a single legal-status neighborhood is divided into several administrative neighborhoods with their own offices and staff and are usually distinguished from one another by a number. The primary division of a dong is the tong, but divisions at this level and below are seldom used in daily life. Some dong are subdivided into ga, which are not separate levels of government but exist for use in addresses; many major thoroughfares are also subdivided into ga. Malli-dong is a neighborhood in the Jung-gu (“Central District”) in Seoul, located on the north side of the Han river.
