Seomyeon (Hanja: 西面) is the commercial center and transportation hub in Busan Busanjin-gu, South Korea. Seomyeon is also the most crowded area in Busan, having a floating population of 165,300 a day. Seomyeon has three underground shopping malls meeting beneath the Seomyeon road junction, a department store, many shopping stores, bars, restaurants, movie theaters, banks, bookstores, clinics, etc.

The area called Seomyeon is Bujeon-dong. The name of Seomyeon was that of an old administrative district surrounding the area when Busan was a small village in the Joseon Dynasty Era. Current Busanese citizens still call the area Seomyeon as then they did, though its official administrative precinct is now known as Bujeon-dong.

As a transportation hub, Seomyeon has most public transportation, including the subway and buses, to take you anywhere in Busan. Seomyeon Station near the Seomyeon road junction is one of the busiest subway stations in Korea and the transfer station between Busan HüMetro Lines 1 and 2.
