I have no graphic design skills to speak of, but I applaud the many
proposals you have already sent --- and hope to see many others!

I think it is important, though, to understand the items you are
choosing to be part of your proposals. I see a recurring theme are:

- Red + blue colors (I suppose, related to the national flag)
  - Several of your proposals include also a very distinctive
    yellow. Does that yellow have a meaning as well, or is it just
    that it made aesthetic sense?
- Hanging bridge (Gwangan Bridge?) (is that bridge also what is
  depicted in logo option "D"?
- Bird (seagull?), I suppose highlighting that Busan is a city by the
  sea. Although I find this worth asking -- Most Korean cities seem to
  be very much coastal (or almost coastal). Is this identification
  related to Busan being on the South-Easternmost tip of the country?
  Is Busan "more" of a port city than others in the country?

Anyway, kudos for your work! Hope to see others joining in.
