Bomun Hillside

Resurrection City: The Scale of Seoul's Urban Renewal Process

Bomun Hillside

A woman led her grandchildren down a steep road through the abandoned neighborhood of Bomun, the same route she likely had taken for years without worry. Most of the area’s structures had already been cleared out in preparation for development; only huge piles of debris remained. The blue tarps are intended to prevent dust from kicking up, as well as to protect against erosion caused by rain, which could lead to landslides.
