The Busan Tourism Organization announced it would offer a tour of spots featured in the movie “Ode to My Father.” The movie is about Koreans living in the poverty-stricken 1950s and ’60s who leave the country to work overseas. The movie takes place in Busan and shows major sites including Nampo-dong; PIFF Plaza; food alleys; Bupyeong Market, also known as Kkangtong (Tin Can) Market; and Yongdusan Park. The tour takes two hours and will include old stories about Busan told by local people. For more information, visit bto.or.kr.
