Koreatown is an ethnic enclave located in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, centered on West 32nd Street and Fifth Avenue. The unique intersection of k-town’s spatiality and temporality has given rise to its urban density and perpetual bustle. Our neighborhood portrait is set against backdrop of iconic anthem (“Gee” by Girls Generation) with round-the-clock time-lapse footage presented in parallel with the permanently upbeat k-pop rhythm. We hope to capture the vibrancy and more importantly, diversity of commercial activities located within the space of a single street that never sleeps; that has grown to become a landmark destination for Asian entertainment.
