Nine-year-old Heejin lives with her family in a village that’s so old, the government is helping to restore and preserve it. Many village children are learning traditional Korean dances that are performed for tourists. The village also makes carved masks and totem poles. We visit Heejin’s school and the nearby open market, where her father buys food that he and Heejin’s mother will prepare in their restaurant.

Kitae, also age nine, lives with his family in Seoul. Before school he takes English lessons by phone. He walks to school, where students get a fluoride treatment for their teeth, serve each other lunch and clean up after themselves. After school he takes math, art and Tae Kwon Do classes. His mother buys seafood at the market and cooks a special meal for his aunt and cousins.
