The helicopter belonging to LG Electronics Inc. plunged into the upper part of the 38-storey residential block at around 8:55 a.m. local time before falling to the ground, killing the captain and vice captain on board.
The crash damaged the outer wall of the 21st to 27th floors of the building.
Local authorities said no one inside the apartment was injured as most people had been evacuated.
“It seems that the helicopter lost visibility due to the thick fog,” a National Emergency Management Agency official was quoted as saying by Yonhap news agency.
Police and firefighters have been deployed to the site to clear the helicopter wreckage and evacuate residents.
The cause of the incident is under investigation.
