7 killed in Seoul studio complex fire

SEOUL - Seven tenants were killed and 11 others injured early Friday (Nov 9) when a blaze ripped through a three-storey studio complex in Seoul, fire authorities said. While South Korea is technologically advanced and has risen to become the world s 11th-largest economy, many people who have missed out on its progress struggle to get by. Low-income tenants often live in buildings with tiny single-bed studios once favoured by applicants preparing for various state examinations and known as goshiwon, or exam centres.
