Dec 17,2018
1) These residential building complexes in Yongsan were built in 1966: this footage is from June 2018.

2) These buildings have been the subject of many complaints lately, with many claiming that their age has rendered them structurally unsound. Nothing has been done.

3) In August 2018, the ground around one such old building in Geumcheon collapsed.

4) The collapse was the result of negligence on the geological engineer, construction workers and construction manager’s parts.

5) This kindergarten in the Dongjak District was opened in March 2018. However, here’s footage from this past September.

6) The structure’s flaw stems from a nearby building’s updated design, the fault of the construction manager.

7) This Daejeong building was constructed in 1991: this footage is from December 2018.

8) The risk of collapse seems to emerge as a result of poor construction.
