Our new Korean apartment:
As small as it may be, I don't think we'd choose to have it any other way. Having a bigger apartment would just require having more stuff to fill the space. With less room we're forced to evaluate the necessity of our possessions and keep only what we truly value.
So far, anyway, the space hasn't been an issue. We get a lot of sunlight and "fresh" air, which is as much as we could ask for. In the end, though, we don't plan on spending a lot of time in the apartment - too many adventures await.
