The Sarangbang has been mangled. It has been twisted by the infinite reach of c a p i t a l i s m. A once humble, male-only study, is now globally rated for its cosiness and Wi-Fi speed. The non-traditional success of its architecture has morphed its interior entirely. Authenticity is uncomfortable and therefore must be manipulated into something more marketable. Tradition is lost, only its shell remains.
But maybe it’s not so bad… The gorgeous Ms. Marei can now stay, enjoy her Netflix, Scandinavian furniture and Earl Grey without the burden of the traditionally dictated program.
