The 1988 Olympics were a transforming event of Seoul, and for all of South Korea. For the first time, people around the world came to see this country as a modern, prosperous, "happening place", rather than some impoverished backwater.

I was there a year after the Olympics. Touring these facilities, one can see that they are as modern as any.
