The idea comes from how I sometimes feel like my home (America) is not far from Korea, but in reality they are pretty far apart. Although you can find Koreatowns around America, I have not yet actually found a real "Americatown" in Korea. Sure Itaewon, the hub of international bars and restaurants, can sometimes feel like America. But to me there is no one place where a community of Americans have settled down in Korea and reshaped the neighborhood to look and feel like home. Instead, I can imagine what this would look like in my mind and art.
