    Just like the other condemned neighbourhoods I've visited, the story of this one is obvious. After the Korean War, refugees moved back to the city and built shantytowns over the wreckage. Those shantytowns eventually grew to these buildings. At some point someone who was rich realised that the land underneath the buildings was unclaimed and bought it, so they could legally chase these descendants of squatters out.
