I realized fairly recently that I don’t know much about my family’s history. My grandfather and grandmother were both grade school drop outs. My grandfather entered the garment industry and then owned and operated several factories in Seoul. My grandmother, who never finished 4th grade, invested money in commercial real estate. They did well for themselves. They bore 5 sons, all different, with different life stories. The eldest son became a botany major then entered Seoul medical school for psychiatry. That man is my father.
