04.06 2015 INTERVIEW DATE
Owners of Homemade Studio, Photographer
Hagi-dong, Yuseong-gu, Daejeon
Daejeon, a three hour drive from Seoul, is a city located in the middle of the country, sitting as a major transit point where main railways and expressways intersect. Most of who travel across Korea have a good chance of passing this city. The city's population elevated soon after the settlement of the Korean War refugees. It is a city that grew rapidly in such short a time it lacks historical traits nor features attractive enough to draw tourists. Nevertheless, located in the most quiet neighborhood among this rather dull city, this young couple's house is like a jewel in disguise, a concealed home for those living their very own ways of life. The two had a good reason for moving to their nostalgic hometown immediately after ending the glamorous life in Seoul where they worked as fashion photographers; the unknown story of Daejeon, a city with much affection.
