Earlier, I decided 섬 wasn't going to be worth it. But I did watch 김 기 덕
's 봄 여 름 가 을 겨 울 그 리 고 봄
. It was impressive. The most impressive thing was the floating hermitage. One reviewer said it made him want to run away to an isolated lake and meditate
. It didn't take me that far, but the beauty of the cinematography was arresting.
Then I came across photos of the floating hermitage
. I had thought that it was just a set constructed for the purpose of making the film. But if an independent photographer can visit it and take photos, it must be a real place
. If its a real place and somebody else was able to go there and get photos, then I can too!
That pushed it up past 단양
on my list of places to visit, camera in-hand.
So, what do I need to do to get there?
1. Google around and find a location. Check: 경북 주왕산국립공원
2. Use that to find a specific name for the reservoir. Check: 주산지
3. Locate a map and Info on how to get there. Check:
...the fateful summary...
"...the hermitage was removed when filming was completed
Well, scratch that plan. I'm sure the reservoir is nice by itself
. But, like someone else said, sure the reservoir is pretty and all but it's the hermitage that really brought it to life
