Synopsis The watch tower is an unattractively battered piece of lighthouse-looking architecture standing on a Yaksadong
hilltop in Chuncheon. No one knows when, who and why it was built, but the tower which was rumored to
have been raised as a fire watch during the Japanese Imperialist times, was used as a surveillance point for the
Chuncheon Penitentiary and now a broadcasting tower where sirens are played during Civil Defense Drills. Its
lucky streak helped it survive the war and the development furor whereby it was considered too ugly to spend time
and money on tearing it down. However, in 2013, when its demolition became official, people finally took the time
to look at it to realize the watch tower never abandoned the moments it shared with them for all those years…
Those moments which have become memories, or recollections.
