Naksan Park: Naksan Park gets its name from its camel hump-like appearance. In Korean ‘nakta’ means camel and ‘san’ means mountain. So people refer to the park as Nakta Park or Naksan Park. The mountain is solid granite bedrock. The Joseon royal family enjoyed the natural beauty of the granite mountain, but during the Japanese Colonial Period, a hasty manner of urban planning resulted in the demolition of most parts of the mountain. In an effort to save the remaining green belts, Naksan was designated as a park on June 10, 2002. Located in the centre of the Seoul, this historical and beautiful park allows its visitors to view the magnificence of the entire city.
That Hill: A meeting of traditional Korean trot melody and modern arrangements. What characterises this work are the reminiscences about the artist's joy and sorrow for their childhood memories, the artist's parents and their generation, and the arrangement of the chronological changes over time at Naksan Park.
Hating my poverty, I came to Seoul empty-handed
My father still has that boy in his eyes.
I wanted my child to have a better life than mine.
Not a single ring shines on my mother's fingers.
Going up the hill again today, I miss the days of long ago
When the sunset rolls over the alley, all those cold-hearted years make me cry.
Out of breath on the staircase of the steep hill
I hear the sound of rice cooking over a low wall.
A round moon over a white stone wall
The rattling sound of the sewing machine never ends.
