Hello,

I am supposed to start a contract in Seoul in August but my family is pumped full of fear by Western news and the threat of a war with N Korea (since it's next door to Seoul).

Is anyone in Seoul right now that can shed light on the situation?
Is it safe to go or are Westerners leaving the country?

No one is leaving because of that. Tensions were higher 3 years ago.

I saw several lines of westerners boarding flights and leaving, yesterday.

What's the worst that can happen?

I'd be more worried about the Korean economy than about North Korea, especially if you're thinking about staying for a few years.
