1963.1.1
Promotion Date
On January 1, 1963, Busan, the second largest city in South Korea, was promoted to a municipality (currently a metropolitan city).

Busan's population rapidly increased when evacuees gathered during the Korean War and became a temporary capital, and then the size of the city gradually expanded for sustainable economic development.

It was a municipality for 18 years until Daegu and Incheon were promoted to municipalities in 1981.
