My Grandfather's Life
My grandfather (mother’s father) was born in 1938 in Jeon Buk Jinan Korea. I remember when I saw my grandpa for the first time. It was picture of him and he was smiling at me happily. He had small nose and big bright smile. It was my first time I saw him and the last time I saw him in my grandmother’s house.
He went to school but he didn’t stay long. He was just a normal kid before Korea formed independence army. First, he had to became a soldier and fight in the Korean War, but he decided not to be a soldier and he could easily escape from armies. After that his mom died and his dad moved away from him. He moved to Jeon Ju by himself. When he moved to Jeon Ju and he started work as a carpenter and he did construction work. While he did the work he met my grandma in 1961.
1966, finally he married her and my mom was born in 1975. Lastly a few years before he got in a car crash he and his whole family went to see the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
