"Remember Myeongdong in 1993?"

Above is a Youtube video that contains scenes of Myeongdong from 1993. 

Posted by Hong Kim, it runs about 13 minutes and covers much of Seoul's main shopping and cultural centers such as Myeongdon, Jongno, Donamdong and Sungshin area.

Kim immigrated to the U.S. as a child. The video, which he took with an 8 mm video camera, was taken when he was back for a visit in 1993. He said, "I was worried that I would not able to keep the video if anymore time passed so I had it converted to a Youtube video."
