Korea could see its population officially exceed 50 million people next month.
The Ministry of Public Administration and Security says the number stood just 23-thousand shy of the 50-million mark as of the end of August.
But the total will get a boost in October when the ministry registers roughly 466-thousand previously unregistered citizens as citizens with unknown residency.
Their registrations were cancelled because they did not have a permanent address.
Nearly half of the Korean population lives in the Seoul metropolitan area, which includes Incheon and Gyeonggi Province followed by Busan and Gyeongsang Province.
