The sound of cicadas is one of the signature sounds of summer in Korea. The cicadas were often attached to window screens instead of trees. That sound spreads throughout my hometown

Large-scale housing development projects and the higher energy consumption of people accelerated the urban heat island phenomenon in Seoul. The raised temperature in the city promotes the breeding of cicadas which leads to an exploding population of cicadas in the city. It reminds me that human activity directly affects nature right next to my everyday life.
