The other side of Gangnam

The other side of Gangnam
The piece of Seoul untouched by the "Miracle on the Han River".

One of my German classmates in Korea posted a photo of him standing next to a shack on Instagram with no context. I initially thought the photo what taken somewhere along his travels through Africa, and coming from South Africa myself, I thought that's brave thing to do taking the potential safety risks into account.

Turns out the photo was taken not too far from us, in fact it was taken right outside the infamous ultra luxurious Gangnam district, where there's no shortage of supercars and $4000 Gucci handbags.

Soon after myself and a mate had to go see it for ourselves.

I found it on the map and went there soon after.

This is what we found.
