I wonder if there is a Spanish word for Seoulite, a citizen of Seoul, the capital of South Korea.

Seoulite is an English demonym and French has a similar word Séoulite, but I couldn't find a corresponding word in Spanish.

If there is no such a word, what would be a good choice when the general rule of word formation in Spanish is applied?

Seulense / seulés

Ambos nombres designan a los habitantes de Seúl. En español se han usado tradicionalmente los gentilicios seulés y seulense para nombrar a las personas originarias de Seúl, capital de Corea del Sur.
