An "officetel" is a type of South Korean apartment that comes from the word office+hotel, implying an apartment with a few more amenities at a bit of a higher cost than most.
In this case, I pictured an outer suburban scene in Seoul where officetels dominate the skyline.
Typically they are 20 floors high, with 20 officetels per level (1000 people per building). Most have indoor enclosed balcony areas.

Yep, your typical Korean officetel! I'm living in one right now, but in a much smaller (and cheaper) shoebox! There's a little distortion in this photo, or maybe it needs a bit of straightening. I would have concentrated on the two on the right which would have elminated all of the background buildings and trees.
