The answer seesm to be A.
B shed , that means shed already incorrect the action should continue.
C Seoul's is wrong.  It is Seoul that was rebuilt after the Korean war not its gritty image, so there is a misplaced modifier here, also the use of " being" is incorrect. Whenever you see a sentence with "being" in it, quickly eliminate it.
D Having been and after together not needed
E, was shedding illogically means Seoul has stopped shedding which seems incorrect. Also E is wrong, because past continuous doesn't make sense without a point of reference ..is shedding means it is still doing.
