CHONGJU HOUSE DURING KOREAN WAR
Korean War, Seoul was a battle zone and occupied by communists army twice.
When Seoul was invaded second time by Chinese Red Army, Cho family escaped to
Pusan first. Then, our grandfather got a job as an English teacher at Chongju
Commercial High School and moved to Chongju, where they lived for almost 3
years and my father finished high school. The Cho Family (our grandparents,
two aunts, father and cousin Seong-Koo) all lived in this small two bedrooms
(about 150 sq. ft. each) house built by mud bricks and provided by the
school at the backyard of Chongju Commercial High School.
grandfather, who loved animals, had chicken, turkeys, goats at the tiny
backyard of this house and D.I. had many rabbits in several rabbit cages shown
at lower right of the picture.
