"One of the last glory spots of US history"
When I lived in Korea for 14 months, Inchon was still mostly a flood plain known as the place where General Douglas MacArthur launched the surprise invasion of Korea which ultimately led to at least preserving some semblance of a free nation on the Korean Peninsula. (It is not at all true to say that the UN forces won the Korean conflict. They lost it just as the US lost the Viet Nam fiasco, and may still lose in Iraq, because the governments start the fights but then the civilians who somehow convince themselves that all will be well, even without any meaningful national defense, raise such a fuss that the government then forces the military to fight with one hand tied behind their backs until the pacifists convince the general population that we never could have won anyway and we tuck our tails and skulk out of the country.)
"Where was I?"
Oh, yes. Inchon did not change a great deal for the 20-25 years after the Korean conflict but as the center of international air transport began moving from the American-built Kimpo Airport to the new, modern, and beautiful Incheon International Airport, the former village of Inchon became a major center of transportation and warehousing. With the recent announcement of a joint venture between the airport and Hollywood entertainment giant, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. that they will open a major theme park adjacent to the airport within the next three years, the tourism industry cannot be far behind.
