Seoul floods: At least eight dead amid heaviest rain in decades
Destruction spreads throughout Seoul this morning. But the scene of the real tragedy is a brick house, where small broken windows are pointed from the sidewalk. The windows belong to a basement floor where three people, trapped by the water, drowned last night: two sisters in their 40s and one of their 13-year-old daughters. This morning it is still surrounded by water and debris. The house is almost identical to the apartment featured in the Oscar-winning film Parasite. The real-life events here evoke the opening scene, in which the main family desperately tries to get water out of their house during a torrential downpour; only this result is much worse. That South Korean President Yoon visited the apartment earlier shows that these deaths are significant.
