My parents were real estate dealers in the 80s, Seoul. Thanks to the property market boom, they were able to realize the “middle class dream”. But after the Asian financial crisis, everything vanished into thin air and my family lost everything. I grew distant from my parents since adolescence and always wanted to run away from them.One day, my parents are told by the landlord to move out because our apartment will soon be reconstructed. However, they are far from being worried about finding a new place to live; they are still waiting for a “jackpot” in real estate. As I started to look at my family history, I realized that the scars of my life and my family’s own economic rise and decline are related to a huge bubble of speculation and urban development.
