In line with having one of the world’s strongest economies in terms of GDP, South Korea’s capital city Seoul also has one of the highest expenses in terms of groceries across Asia. But as a result, hunger is becoming an increasingly problematic social issue for those of low socioeconomic status. And it is having serious consequences on the physical and social development of young children. One man, however, has dedicated his life to ensuring that no child goes hungry in Korea. As the owner of the successful Real Pasta (진짜 파스타) restaurant in Seoul, Oh Tae-in has long been giving out free pasta meals to hungry children. And having recently established his Good Influence Program (선한영향력), Oh is now encouraging other small businesses across Seoul to provide food and basic necessities to children in need to ensure Korea’s future. In this video, we meet Oh to see just how he operates his restaurant, and to witness just how great an impact he is having on the people in his community.
