The city of Seoul last year recorded its lowest smoking rate on record, and the city wants to bring it down even more.
According to a survey on Monday, which was 'World No Tobacco Day,' among men in Seoul, the smoking rate was 28.9 percent, the first time it's ever been under 30 percent.
The rate among women was 15.five percent, also the lowest on record.
The city has partnered with the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use.
With a grant from Bloomberg, Seoul will work with the WHO to regulate cigarette ads that encourage smoking.
