The Seoul Sungnyemun Inferno

Sungnyemun On Fire

The Great South Gate of Seoul, Sungnyemun was on fire in 2008. The breaking news was reported worldwide.

The incident happened during Lunar New Year on February 10, 2008. The blaze was caused by an angry South Korean who was unsatisfied over the compensation of land acquisition.


The stone base of Sungnyemun was not affected by the flame but the others two levels were seriously damaged. South Korea National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage had decided to restore the destructed Sungnyemun.

I will reveal some information on the reinstatement of the Sungnyemun in the next blog article.
