The Wider Image: Scarred by 2020, Gen Z looks to a COVID-free future
Lee Ga-hyeon, 17, a high school student and a fan of the K-pop boyband BTS, poses for a photograph on a street in Cheonan, South Korea, December 16, 2020. Lee has a big wish for 2021 - to finally escape her bedroom in a city about 100 km (60 miles) from Seoul and see her pop idols BTS in person at a live event. "BTS is like a vitamin for me, but the coronavirus took it from me which made me really angry," said Lee. The pandemic forced BTS to cancel a world tour in 2020 that would have taken the seven-member band through Asia, Europe and the United States, and its New Year's Eve concert will be online. For Lee, there were no more trips to Seoul to see concerts and hang out with friends, and instead life has gone largely online, where South Korea's hyper-connectivity helped her host a YouTube channel showcasing BTS events from the past three years. It was a year that reminded her how special it was to have friends even though they remained apart. But it left her hoping that the new year will allow her to pursue her dream of studying mass communications and law at university. "Last year I spent a lot of time chatting with friends face-to-face on break time and lunch time, but I couldn't do it at all this year," said Lee. "I finally realized how precious that time was."
