Korea is a small country. Coming from one-storied America, it takes time to get used to seeing high-rises stretched as far as an eye can see. The country is building up, literally. 20 years ago the place where we live right now used to be farmland. However, the sizes of apartments inside such buildings are typically smaller than the size of an American condo. Elevators in apartment buildings are also on a shy side. I can see a potential problem arising in the event of a major move or trying to bring in a Queen-size bed to the 15th floor using a skinny elevator.
