Hi, I understand that you're only meant to put a comma before 'or' if it is joining two independent clauses; however what about listing things. 'He may go to the newspapers or call the police or go to the school board.' Would you use commas in this ...

What do you call Seoul people? *Seoul is a capital of Korea
 In English, I would not try to use just one word.
For some cities, there is an accepted term, eg New Yorkers, Torontonians.
But for most cities, there is not.
I'd say simply
eg residents of Seoul
eg people who live in Seoul
 I have most often heard the term "Seoulite" used or "person from Seoul." I have on rare occassion heard the term Seoul-simin; however, I think this term is just a transliteration of a Korean term, not the proper English word.
 Seoul is the capital of Korea.
