The 5.4 magnitude rocked the coast near Pohang in South Korea in the sea of Japan.

The earthquake shook buildings and caused books to fall from shelves sending tremors as far as Seoul – kilometers away from where it struck.

At least four people have been injured, disaster officials confirmed.

The quake occurred at around 2:29 p.m and a series of aftershocks were felt soon after, the Korea Meteorological Administration said.

Mark Zastrow, who lives in Seoul, tweeted: “Woah, earthquake in Pohang and just felt it in Seoul, a few seconds after I got the alert on my phone.”

According to a US Geological Survey (USGS) chart the intensity, tremors would have been felt in North Korea.

An earthquake in the area has raised fears North Korea may have launched another missile test.

In September experts were monitoring Pyonggang after Kim Jong triggered an earthquake with one of his tests.

The head of the nuclear test monitoring agency CTBTO has said that its analysts were “looking at unusual seismic activity” in North Korea.
