What was it like to live in Busan in the 1980s and 1990s?  Here’s what Busan looked like in the 80s and 90s.

South Korea has demonstrated incredible economic growth and global integration over the last four decades to become a high-tech industrialized economy. GDP per capita in the 1960s was comparable to levels in poorer African and Asian countries.  The 1990s were a turning point in South Korean history. The country was ruled by a nonmilitary government led by a civilian president, who liberalized the country. Korean pop music was transformed with a burst of creativity and intensity that foreshadowed the rise of Kpop. People wanted a better life and more leisure/luxury, so the consumer sector boomed.
