The 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea was a landmark event and was considered a great success. However, there is a darker story behind such an epic event. About a decade before the Olympics, the South Korean leadership rounded up “vagrants” from the streets and held them captive in a group home in order to keep them off the streets. These “vagrants” were held in inhumane ways and it was hidden behind the veil of “cleaning the streets”. These events are still considered unjustified.
