Most Koreans in small Eastern countries live in apartments. Apartments in Korea are expensive. So many people spend their lifetime savings on buying apartments. So they tend to think of apartments only as property. Koreans also lived in detached houses in the past. But as urbanization progressed, many of these houses disappeared. Still, they're guarding this house and living life the way it used to be. They don't want to leave. They are people who know the value of having a happy life rather than getting a lot of money from home.

I live in Busan, Korea. I majored in art education. I'm interested in cities, buildings, and architecture. I take photos of cities. My photos is called architectural anatomy.
