    Twenty years ago on June 29, the Sampoong Department Store collapsed.
    Thirteen years ago on June 29, the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong was waged.

    Now, we are engulfed by the MERS crisis.

    These are all tragic and unforgettable moments in Seoul’s history.
    As such, we must record them, remember them,
    and make sure such disasters never happen again.

    However, from the aftermath of one of the most difficult crises we have ever faced,
    a “New Seoul” is emerging.
