Today, South Korea is known as a bastion of modern fashion, architecture and K-pop music. But it is almost surreal to see what the country used to look like and how people lived.

Across the 1960s to 1980s, 62-year-old Korean documentary photojournalist Min-jo Jeon, who worked at the Dong-a Ilbo and Korea Times newspapers for some 30 years, traveled around South Korea and took photos of an emerging South Korea. 

Min-jo Jeon's work will soon be displayed at the National History Museum in Jongno, Seoul. The exhibition, named "Pictures Tell the Story," starts Nov. 26 and will run for two months.
