The Cho family lives in South Korea. Shi Hwon is 70 years old and is a labourer. His wife Bak Lang is 65 years old and they live in a 2-bedroom house. They own the house and have been living here for 30 years. The best thing about their house is the fresh air environment and its cheap cost compared to downtown area. The only issue is that it gets very cold in winters. Their favorite item in the house is their computer. The next big thing they plan on buying is a new fridge. Their dream is to try to help others.

The Cho family lives in South Korea. Shi Hwon is 70 years old and is a labourer. His wife Bak Lang is 65 years old and she is unemployed. Shi Hwon works for a total of 45 hours/week. The Cho family lives in a 2-bedroom house, which they built with the help of family and friends. They own it and have been living here for the past 30 years. They like that the house is in an area with clean air but they find it too cold in winters. The house has reliable electricity, running water, and toilet facility. The family has to buy 100% of its food, which costs them about 70% of their income. They use propane fuel for cooking. Drinking water is available in the house but it must be boiled for safety. Every week, Bak Lang spends 3 hours boiling water, 3 hours attending to home agricultural activities and 14 hours doing housework. The Cho family hardly saves any money but they sometimes go on vacation. The furthest they have ever been was Seoul, South Korea. Their favorite item in the house is their computer. The next big thing they plan to buy is a new refrigerator. Their dream is to try to help others.
