    These buildings are the first residential apartment buildings of Seoul. At the time of their construction they were very upscale, but have since become poor housing.

    I noticed fire damage on these apartment buildings in 2005, so I went inside. Since 2005, this place has been restored and seems to be active again, although severely modified.

     Future Plans
    I thought this place was going to be demolished, and it still might, but the buildings are in much nicer shape now and seem inhabited.
