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
