Trip to Suwon

I finally got to my destination, another abandoned neighbourhood.

We shot a bunch of footage here.

The bulk of our time was spent in those buildings down there.

I was quite shocked when I saw this statue sitting outside one home.

Going inside, I found there was a lot more to it than that.

A Korean explorer friend told me going to a place like this has a lot of spiritual dangers.

First I had to find my friend, who was somewhere over here.


I told him to follow me and get ready for something very weird.

This police helicopter actually moved on its own once I gave it a push.

Well, there's the name of this place.

He took a picture of me with this dress.

Here's the room where the magic happens, so to speak.

The room also had all these big, colourful panels.

Curious what the story is with the toy cellphone.

It's like the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band of Korean spirituality. It's so wide it's out of focus on the edges.

We had to stay quiet when it sounded like there were people outside.

Sometime after that, we ran into workers who escorted us out. We found another abandoned neighbourhood across the street.


In 2004 I taught my first adult students in this chogajib in northern Suwon.

I'm not 100 percent sure this is really a whale meat restaurant.

If it were, would they be so blatant as to have a whale tied up out front?
