Better Days

South Korea has undergone a rapid transformation over the last forty years accompanied by major transitions in employment practises. One of the consequences of these economic and social shifts has been longer working hours with short holidays and it is this aspect of Korea’s development that Seunggu Kim documents in his project Better Days.

The constraints of having short holidays prohibits Korean workers from traveling very far afield, leading them to choose to spend time in leisure centres near their homes. In these local resorts Korean and western cultures are mixed together offering a hybrid holiday experience.
