Photographer's Note

Simcheonggak Pavilion on the north east coast of Baengnyeongdo Island. That's the North Korean coast at right, just 12 km away. "To publicize Baengnyeongdo Island, as the setting for the story of Sim Cheong, Simcheonggak Pavilion was built in a location where visitors can see Idangsu and Yeonbongbawi Rock, the latter being a spot from which Sim Cheong jumped into the sea, to restore her blind father's eyesight." (A famous Korean folk tale).
