TO GO WITH SKorea-society-poverty,FEATURE by Lim Chang-Won This photo taken on October 11, 2012 shows a South Korean elementary school girl walking on a road lined by a cluster of shacks in Guryong Village against the background of high-rise business buildings in Seoul. Guryong -- a squalid, sprawling slum of plywood and tarpaulin shacks settled in 1988 by squatters evicted from other areas in a push to beautify Seoul as it prepared to host the Olympic Games. Nearly 25 years later, Guryong (which translates as 'Nine Dragons') has more than 2,000 residents scrabbling out a subsistence living with Third World poverty levels and little or no proper sanitation.
