Another piece of Korean history burned to ashes

11 Feb

What a tragedy…
Last night some ajosshi bum burned down Namdaemun, the 600 year old wooden gate which marked the south border of the old city.

There are a ton of photos out in the media.

This one was snatched from the Korea Herald website.

Namdaemun Fire

Here’s a historical photo tribute
which links to what are possibly the most striking shots
coming from a waegookin whose flickr link I’ve posted below
Namdaemun Fire February 10, 2008

A huge loss for the nation…

They say it will take three years to reconstruct…

another soon to be replica.
