The number of public officials who have a home in 4 districts in Gangnam, Seoul was 39, 36%.

However, these figures are for the release of property in the Gazette last March, and do not reflect the retirees or the dispositions they have made.

In fact, the proportion of multi-homeowners is estimated to have decreased somewhat, as some officials, such as Deputy Prime Minister Hong Nam-ki and Finance Minister Eun Sung-soo, sold their homes.

The Democratic Party proposed an amendment to the Public Officials' Ethics Act that excludes multi-homed people or possesses high-value real estate properties.
