History[edit] Main article: Provinces of Korea Although the details of local administration have changed dramatically over time, the basic outline of the current three-tiered system was implemented under the reign of Gojong in 1895. A similar system also remains in use in North Korea.

Types[edit] Provinces (도, 道) are the highest-ranked administrative divisions in South Korea. Along with the common provinces, there are four types of special administrative divisions with equal status: special autonomous province, special city, metropolitan city, and special autonomous city. A special autonomous province (특별자치도, 特別自治道) is a province with more autonomy over its economy and more powers are given to the provincial government. Jeju is the only special autonomous province, while Seoul is the only special city and Sejong is the only special autonomous city.

Administration[edit] Governors for the provinces and mayors for the special/metropolitan cities are elected every four years. Current governors and mayors are listed at List of governors of South Korea.
