Korea in the 1970’s and 80’s

We went to a place in Pohang that modeled what the 1970's and 80's looked like in Korea. Although it was a short walk through, I was able to see at a glance what it was like for my parents to live in South Korea at the time. They left to the States in '92. Seeing an old model then showing my parents and asking them if it's true was an experience I remember very well because I don't get to visually appreciate how my parents grew up and what kinds of activities were available for them. It was very fun touring this area and walking through different scenes of Korea during that time. Not only do I feel like I learned more about Korea by seeing an example of that time but also being able to relate it to my parents and talking with them allowed a window for our relationship where they can interject and tell me stories of their past time living in Korea. It is now made easier through holding up pictures and them pointing at them and telling me what kinds of videos they watched even to the kinds of candy they made after school with their friends. imageimageimageimage
