The Seoul Blog - Apartment City

Everywhere you go in Korea there are giant apartment complexes. They all look pretty much the same: tall, rectangular, plain - with a name and building number on the sides. Seeing as the apartments cost a fortune, you'd think they could at least stylize the buildings. Can't they make them look a little unique? Sometimes the complexes look identical and have the exact same name. For example, their are Samsung Apartments everywhere in Korea.

A typical cluster of apartment buildings, these near Ehwa's Woman's University. They're tall, they're plain, they block all the scenery. Some of the complexes are so big they actually become miniature cities.
