Namdaemunium

The collapse of Sungnyemun is a tragedy for Seoul, where most National Treasures have been reconstructed after the Japanese occupation or the war. The Southern Gate survived both, but despite its central and remote location it couldn't be saved from a vulgar fire.

Rebuilding National Treasure #1 will take 3 years.

How long to recover from this feeling of loss ?
