Better Days


Korea has been developed rapidly over 40 years, which caused a lot of social ironies. One of the irony is long working hours with very short period of break. During holidays, Koreans try their best to enjoy it, but due to lack of time to travel, they spend time mostly around city. For these reasons, city's time and space, social restriction and optimism, collective leisure and consumption are compressed.

"Better Days" implies to Korean society.

한국은 지난 40년에 걸쳐 급속한 발전을 이루었다. 이 과정에서 많은 사회적 모순이 생겨났는데, 그 중에 하나가 긴 노동 시간 끝에 주어지는 짧은 휴가다. 여유로운 여가를 즐기기 힘든 한국 사람들은 긴 여행 대신에 주로 도시 주변에 머물며 일상의 피로를 풀기 위해 노력한다. 이러한 이유들로 도시의 시간과 공간, 사회적 제약과 낙관, 집단적 여가와 소비는 압축되었다.

 

'Better Days'는 한국 사회를 함축적으로 보여준다.
