Working on this story was a reminder that the only certain thing about dealing with loss is how uncertain it is. After dad died, I didn’t give myself any time to grieve. I thought the best way to move on was to stop thinking about him as quickly as I could, so I threw myself back into my routines. And it worked for awhile, until I had a very rough period in college that led me to seek out free counselling services on campus. It took me a long time to convince myself to go, but it was an eye-opening experience that helped me realize I hadn’t ever talked in depth with anyone about my dad’s death. // For a long time, my grieving was defined by anger and self-blame. But my mom said something to me on our flight to Korea that has since redefined my grieving. I asked her if she recalled us fighting as much as I remembered. She said yes. But she also said it wasn’t anybody’s fault. “He tried to prepare you for the world he had grown up in,” she said. “But we had left that behind.” This latest trip to Korea was just one more step in learning how to grieve. I’ll never forget him, and I’ll never be immune from his absence. But it hurts a little less, and I’m hopeful. #yongpyong #pyeongchang #용평리조트 #평창 #pyeongchang2018

조일련 and her father 조주희. I met the pair on a chairlift, when I overheard the dad describing what the area was like when he was young. I showed them my dad’s portfolio book, which I carried with me during my trip. The dad looked at me and said, “You must come from a good family. Not just anyone gets to build something like this.” I felt immensely proud of my dad in that moment. #yongpyong #pyeongchang #용평리조트 #평창 #pyeongchang2018

장관빈 has been visiting Yongpyong since he was 8 years old; now, he brings his newborn son. While I can’t remember any of our family trips, it was amazing to see that my dad had built a space where others could create and share memories. My story from Yongpyong is out in the @globeandmail today. Link in bio. #yongpyong #pyeongchang #pyeongchang2018 #용평리조트 #평창

I met families visiting Yongpyong for the first time, and others who had been skiing there since its opening. While I can’t remember any of our family trips, it was amazing to see that my dad had built a space where others could create and share memories.

Wallpaper inside Yongpyong’s villa condominium, built in 1989. Dad started building the resort back in 1974 — some of his buildings are definitely showing their age. #yongpyong #pyeongchang #pyeongchang2018 #평창 #용평리조트

The Youth Hostel, one of the first buildings my dad built at Yongpyong Ski Resort. Across the street is a brand new hostel that towers over the resort landscape — dad’s hostel will soon be closed and repurposed. In Korea, my aunts told me stories about dad never being able to relax at the resort — even on family trips, the smallest details like incorrect table settings would set him off into work mode. #yongpyong #pyeongchang #pyeongchang2018 #평창 #용평리조트

The original condominium at Yongpyong Ski Resort, completed in 1981. The 200-unit complex was part of my dad’s submission for the Korean Architects Association Grand Prize award. The last few weeks have been busy with editing, writing and reflecting. I’ll be sharing my Yongpyong project soon, but with the Olympics only days away, I wanted to share an outtake or two. The last few days I have been living vicariously through other photographers’ posts on Instagram, and I wish I was back in Pyeongchang to experience the excitement. #yongpyong #pyeongchang #pyeongchang2018 #용평리조트 #평창
