Better Days

Korea has been developed rapidly over 40 years, which caused a lot of social ironies. One of the ironies 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 the city. This collective leisure and its spatial environment reveal the attitude of Koreans living with optimism and a sense of community despite social constraints.

"Better Days" implies to Korean society.

한국은 지난 40년에 걸쳐 급속한 발전을 이루었다. 이 과정에서 많은 사회적 모순이 생겨났는데, 그중에 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. 이런 집단적 여가와 그것을 위한 공간 환경은 사회적 제약에도 불구하고 낙관적 사고와 유대감을 갖고 치열하게 살아가는 한국 사람들의 삶의 태도를 드러낸다.


'Better Days'는 한국 사회를 함축적으로 보여준다.
