Old video footage of Seoul in 1980 is going viral. 


The clear video takes you back 37 years and shows the life in the capital of South Korea in the year 1980. Some of the greatest hits of the time are played as the background music while the fashion, streets, transportation, shops, and more of its time captivates the eyes.

After watching the video, netizens expressed amazement and commented, "I was about 5-6 years old back then. I used to think it was normal for grandpas and old men to smoke on the buses", "No rules are followed for pedestrians, parking, and driving... and people riding bicycles in the middle of the road... it's a mess lol", "Wow, where did they find such clear footage??? It's amazing", "So many buildings already", "I heard the 1980's was the best time to live", and more.

    Seoul's traffic in the 80s looked a lot like João Pessoa's in the 2010s :V
