[Editorial] Full-scale rebuilding
HDC Hyundai Development has decided to demolish all eight apartment buildings at a complex in Gwangju under construction and rebuild them. The builder decided so, judging that it could hardly dissipate would-be residents' safety concerns if it rebuilds only one partially collapsed building.
