Seoul. I've been to both cities during winter. When I landed in Seoul (November) it instantly felt cold and grim, despite the sunshine. Vancouver for most of the time, just felt like a cold, wet day here.

Seoul. It's influenced by both the Siberian High and the colder ocean due to it's location nearing Hokkaido, while Vancouver is affected by warm current.

Seoul is colder in the winter as the temperatures indicate, significantly colder then Vancouver, but warmer throughout the year.

Again, I'm going to go with the one that is colder. I never buy this crap about winters feeling colder because of damp/cloud etc.. when they're actually warmer. Not for me anyway.

Never seen a more one sided poll...the Boston vs Dublin one is almost as one sided.

I don't see how anyone could effectively argue that Vancouver seems more wintry than Seoul. I've been in Vancouver in the winter. It didn't feel all that cold, even though it was windy and sleety. With that big a difference in temperature, I'm skeptical that the weather could seem harsher in Vancouver, even with windchill.

I guess I thought the extra sunshine and daylight in winter would make a difference for some people. Busan vs Vancouver would have produced a more even result I think
