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. Therefore, the leisure places around Seoul and suburb try to show something interesting to entertain their customers. By doing so, all of the western and Korean cultures are mixed together. The "Better Days" describes Korean spectacles from the way they enjoy their short vacation.

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. 서울과 근교의 여가 공간에는 도시 사람들이 흥미를 느끼고 즐길 만한 다양한 양식들이 뒤섞여 있는데, 'Better Days'는 도시 사람들의 짧은 휴가를 위한 한국식 스펙타클을 보여준다.

Time to question our lifestyle how we live.. Got me thinking about better days -2Pac
