ABSTRACT

Living in non-dwellings violates a right to housing by offering inadequate housing conditions. This article analyzes the spatio-temporal distribution and housing of a Gosiwon, which is the most frequent type of non-dwellings in Korea. First, the result of a spatial kernel density estimation finds four clusters. The spatiotemporal kernel density estimation provides a further evaluation of the clusters, specifically, one relatively recent cluster around Daehak-dong, and older clusters around Yeoksam-dong and Sinchon-dong. Second, a cross type nearest neighbor distance function examines statistically significant spatial clusters from the Gosiwon to subway stations and universities within 90-940, and 210-730 meters, respectively. Finally, the housing conditions and facilities of the Gosiwon are summarized, which shows the minimum size, and the highest rental fee, and the most inadequate housing conditions in Seoul.
