Industrialization and modernization that began in the early 1960s changed everything in Korea. Old buildings have disappeared. Rice fields have turned into lots for factories and apartment complex buildings. Even hundred-year-old customs have given room to new ones. But some tough memories have grown stronger and stronger in the mind of a man who spent his childhood in the 1930s. In his book, the author and painter Kim Man-hee expresses his experiences between the 1930s and the 1950s in words and pictures. The book covers daily life, farming, dealers, craftsmen, ceremonial occasions, games and transportation with over 130 beautiful pictures. It's really amusing to see how those people in the recent past lived. On the other hand, memories of the Japanese colonial period provide clues to how tough it was to lead life here. At the peak of World War II, called "The Pacific War" here, the Japanese colonial government prohibited grains in one part of the country from moving into other parts of the country. Everybody in the train station was searched. Some lucky city-dwellers could go to the public bath, but they were not allowed to stay over half an hour. If they did, the Japanese owner would open the door, roughly shake a bell, and yell. Those who allege the Japanese colonialization was good for the country's modernization will have some second thoughts after reading the book.
