The city of Seoul is working to give a facelift to certain streets and neighborhoods that have been left behind by decades of modernization. So far it’s done ten of them in the past three years. For example, on one of the trendiest streets in the city in Yeonnam-dong, there are cafes and boutique shops and young people hanging out in the park. But at the end of the street, some buildings don’t even have gas for heating or cooking and rely on coal briquettes. The city have spent money to equip them with gas and to make them more visually appealing with fresh paint and small repairs. The goal is to make these improvements in a total of 46 areas.
