The Korea I Love : Mapo Bridge
Of the 27 bridges that connect Seoul's northern and southern sections, Mapo Bridge arguably has the best night views of the city's skyline along the Han River. The bridge has acquired an unfortunate reputation as a symbol for South Korea's high suicide rate. In an effort to deter would-be jumpers, the government has installed lights that flash messages of love and inspiration on the bridge, the effects of which are yet to be studied. The bridge was also a site of filming for the sumer blockbuster 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'. "The bridge can be viewed from ground level at Yeoido but I chose a building rooftop for a more panoramic vista," says Justin Howard, who shot this scene with a fisheye lens "to really make it jump out."
