In the city of Sokcho lies a huge lake known as Yeongnang Lake. Yeongnang Lake played a large role during the fire that broke out in Gangwon Province on April 4 and 5 as helicopters used the water from the lake.
However, Yeongnang Lake itself sustained damage from the fire. Walking around Yeongnang Lake, to the left there were fallen burnt trees and the smell would make you frown, to the right there was the untouched lake shimmering with the reflection of the sun.
To the left, the burnt houses and what was left of them shocked each passerby. At the same time on the right, one could not take their eyes off of the blooming cherry blossoms.
Walking along the Yeongnang Lake was walking between where the fire had reached and where it had not. Both caught one’s attention in different forms but soon one hopes the touched will quickly return to that of the untouched.
