Here is a picture of Grandpa Aboji with his family. To his right is his older sister. This was taken when Aboji went back to Korea for the first time in close to 20 years.
My grandfather is in the middle foreground. He was recently commemorated on a postage stamp in South Korea.
The artist messed up. There is no reason for my grandfather to be wearing a sweater under his suit. 😉
Edit: Letter from my cousin
Oh man I love your blog posts. I scrolled quickly to the one on grandpa and thought you should know… he did frequently wear a sweater under his suit! I have strong memories of a camel colored one and sometimes a soft burgundy cardigan worn almost like a suit vest. To me, it was an extra suave, climate-prepared, and eccentric detail I was glad got captured in the stamp.
