When he moved to Singapore from Korea in 2009, Suh Chin Won, 52, was looking for a job that could accommodate his language barrier. Formerly a logistics manager at a printing company in Seoul, he had relocated to reunite with his family. Three years earlier, his wife Kim Seung Ja, 55, had brought over their daughter Chela Suh, 22, and son Lino Suh, 25, so the kids could pursue a trilingual education here. “Singapore is quite close to Korea, hence we made the huge investment to move here. But we couldn’t bear being apart, so my dad came over too,” Chela tells 8days.sg.
