So imagine our surprise when we wind up in the middle of nowhere at an abandoned elementary school that had been closed for a few years. The great part is they didn't want to show us the location beforehand... and then we saw why. NO ONE in their right mind would live here.
Quite honestly it was the scariest place in Korea I've ever been. And it was quickly demanded that another location be chosen... you'll see why.
Jon and I decided to revisit this little site and see if anything has changed, and although we didn't think it possible, it has gotten even creepier.
Our convo while looking around:
Jon: I feel like I'm just waiting to see a dead body lying around somewhere.
Sara: I'm pretty sure someone is going to jump out of one of these places and kill us.
It truly is one of the most unsettling places I've ever walked around.
because who wouldn't want to live here??
Some lovely broken glass for Eoghan and Ethan to play in :)
Look at all that mold!!! They were going to "re-wall paper" ...ummmm that doesn't get rid of the mold.
That and Amanda was pregnant, Eoghan is 1, there would be a new baby, and Jon is allergic to mold. Somehow I think it might've been a death trap health concern.
And I'm still trying to figure out what all of those spiky things sticking out of the buildings are.
Ahhhh Home Sweet Home.
And look at that view!!! What a FABULOUS yard for Eoghan to play in. It's like his own corn maze. Especially considering these weeds were over my head.
Needless to say, you can see our absolute refusal worries and doubts about this as a possible place to live.
And because we put up enough of a fuss, they listened.
And we thank God for that everyday we are in our cute little house :)
