Legacy Project: Seungjin Lee, Part 1

In the first half of this two-part Legacy Project installment, Seungjin Lee, now a father himself, provides an intimate retrospective on his father’s sacrifices and trials. From Vienna sausages to daycare, Lee, who immigrated to the Bronx at the age of ten, recalls the many day-to-day challenges he and his family faced after his father’s decision to leave South Korea with only $2,000 in his pocket. “Those are the sort of struggles that I couldn’t even fathom, having a family of my own now, with children.”
