Mr. Sunshine is a 2018 South Korean television series written by Kim Eun-sook and directed by Lee Eung-bok, starring Lee Byung-hun, Kim Tae-ri, Yoo Yeon-seok, Kim Min-jung and Byun Yo-han.
The series is set in Hanseong (the former name of Seoul) in the early 1900s, and focuses on activists fighting for Korea’s independence. The series aired every Saturday and Sunday on tvN starting from July 7, 2018, and ended on September 30, 2018. It premiered internationally on Netflix. As of October 2019 it is the fourth-highest-rated Korean drama in cable television history.
Ikseon Boutique is a special rental shop that rents out clothes of 100 years ago in modern Korea. The shop is full of clothes just like the one from K-drama “Mr. Sunshine” and is placed in Ikseon-dong alley, famous for its beauty in Seoul. Also, the place is located near Bukchon Hanok Village, and you can take a tour of Hanok Village after the experience.
“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
“Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.”
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
“The world is always running away from society and the only way to keep the stuff that’s happened in the past is by taking photographs, I can keep memories of things alive with photographs,” Alecto responded. “People say that a time machine can’t be invented, but they’ve already invented a device that can stop time, photographs are the world’s first time machines.”
Taking the time to take real photographs can enhance your travel experience in several ways:
1) Photography makes you more aware of your surroundings.
Once you begin looking for photos, you see much more of the world than if you are just walking through it.
2) Photos help you remember.
Despite the conclusion of the Smithsonian Magazine article, the real test of a photo’s ability to help you remember doesn’t come the day after you take it; it comes years later. As time passes, you need things to jog your memory and nothing works better than photos that you took yourself.
3) People will actually want to see your vacation photos.
Most people are bored to tears of vacation photos that are nothing more than endless shots of people in front of landmarks. Most people don’t want to see you on vacation; they are more interested in the destination itself. If you focus on taking better images, people will actually be interested in seeing your photos.
