山村訓長但知覓

It had to be too good to be true

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:





But...

...then...

...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.

Comments:
Those commies! Why did they have to go adn take the hermitage down? At least they left the sets up from Lord of the rings. Let's go to New Zealand!
 
Well, I guess there's still 단양...
