Sanggye-dong Olympic

Synopsis

Before the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the Korean government forced the redevelopment of Daldongne, for the poor hillside village was not to be seen by foreign guests arriving for the Games. Including Sanggye-dong, residents of two hundred Daldongne areas were expelled from their home. The government demolished all the houses and repressed them with gangsters, bulldozers and riot police.
