I discovered the above video, a video that showcases the best of Seoul, South Korea. It’s an awe-inspiring video, reminding me why I’ll always love Seoul despite all of its flaws. I’ve lived in Seoul since the late 1980s, and I’ve seen and lived through many of its changes. Just seeing the changes in my own neighbourhood reminds me that Seoul is constantly evolving, constantly trying to better itself. Not to mention, everything has become expensive here, but given how Seoul did become one of the economic top dogs in Asia, it’s no wonder inflation is happening.
Money-matter aside, Seoul is a vibrant city, and this video shows it. All the lights, the tall skyscrapers, the cars and people hustling and bustling, the Han River, Namsan Tower, 63 Building — they are what I will always associate with my home city. If I ever move away from here, along with my own memories, this video will be my memento of Seoul.
