西村尹東柱文學館詩人之丘 Seochon Yun Dong Ju Literature House and Poet’s Hill

大家有沒有看過姜河那主演的那部電影東柱?我看過一次,愛上了尹東柱的詩,可是有點不敢再看第二遍,但也是決定一定要找機會去一次首爾的尹東柱文學館。

Have you watched Kang Haneul’s movie Dong Ju? I have watched once and fell in love with the poems, I don’t dare to watch it the second time, but I have decided that I have to go and check out his literature house in Seoul some day.

這裡是由配水站改建的文學館,還得過建築獎。裡面分為三部份,文學館本身,一個開放的天井和封閉的,封閉的代表尹東柱當年被日本人囚禁在福岡監獄的一段日子。文學館裡面有詩人的手稿和照片。後面的仁王山更是當年東柱常常散步的地方,沿路也寫了他的詩句。(更多照片可以看這裡。)仁王山小路更有一段是有城郭,是大自然歷史文化集合的散步小路。走畢全程大概1.5小時。

“Previously a pressurization facility, architect Lee So-jin designed the now-sleek modern building in 2012 to high acclaim. The building has three different parts: the house itself and two former outdoor water tanks called the Open Well and the Closed Well. While the Open Well is a roofless, bright space, the Closed Well is a dark, closed space meant to capture the poet’s days whilst imprisoned in Fukuoka. Within the exhibition hall, the poet’s handwritten manuscripts and photographs are displayed in chronological order. ”

The hills behind- Inwang mountain is a place where Dong Ju frequented when he was in Seoul, and you can see his poems along the way when you walk up the Poet’s Hill. And you can also see a section of city wall up there. (See more pics here.) It is quite a good place for walking, and it will take about 1.5 hours to finish the walk.

Here is a poem of his

這裡附上一首他的詩

尹東柱序詩(翻譯來源

至死仰望天空
毫無愧疚
樹葉間的微風
讓我苦痛。
以歌頌星星的心胸
珍愛逝去中的一切。
給我的道路
繼續走下去

今夜星兒也被風拂過

“Foreword”

Wishing not to have
so much as a speck of shame

toward heaven until the day I die,
I suffered, even when the wind stirred the leaves.

With my heart singing to the stars,
I shall love all things that are dying.

And I must walk the road
that has been given to me.

Tonight, again, the stars are
brushed by the wind.

(Translation by Kyungnyun K. Richards, Steffen F. Richards, Sky, Wind and Stars, Fremont CA 2003)

서시(序詩)

죽는 날까지 하늘을 우러러
한 점 부끄럼이 없기를

잎새에 이는 바람에도
나는 괴로워했다

별을 노래하는 마음으로
모든 죽어가는 것을 사랑해야지

그리고 나한테 주어진 길을
걸어가야겠다

오늘 밤에도 별이 바람에 스치운다

四月時候終於親身去了這文學館,其實就在付岩洞首爾美術館附近,我中途還去了另一個Zaha美術館。這裡門外就是這樣子,不過裡面因為不能拍照就沒有照片。裡面大部份展品都是韓文的,不過因為那個時代用的漢字蠻多,所以就算你不會韓文,可以看得懂的可能跟韓國人差不了很多,因為他們都不會漢字,好像尹東柱的成績表上都是漢字,我記憶中好像他日語的成績不是太好?就奇怪為什麼他日語成績這樣也去日本留學…上面照片有凳子的地方是一個影院,播放一部很短關於尹東柱的視頻,是用韓文放的,不過我覺得看不懂也應該要進去,那裡是一家設計很特別的空間,可能是設計?掛上梯子的牆,陳舊的木凳,還是影院裡只有我一個的黑暗氣氛,彷彿去了另一個世界一般。

I have finally went to the Yun Dong Ju Literature House in April, it is quite close to Seoul Museum in Buam-Dong, on the way there, I found another art museum called Zaha Museum. Most of the exhibits are labelled in Korean, and there is a room showing a video about Yun Dong Ju, which is the place shown in the pic above with the wooden chairs and stools. The design with a ladder on the stained walls and old wooden chairs? Or me being alone inside the space in the dark that day? I felt like I was being transported to another place. (Photography is not allowed inside, so I only have a pic of the outside here.)

就在文學館旁邊就有一條階梯,可以走上去看看詩人常常走的詩人之丘,記得你男女主最後就在這裡見面,我不久前看上流社會也發現炯植第一次帶女二去約會也是這裡。

There is a staircase right next to the museum, you can walk up the Poet’s Hill along the staircase. (This is where Hello Monster/I Remember You was filmed, and in High Society, this is where Park Hyung Sik took the girl to on their first “date”.

欄杆上寫了詩人的詩,可以在這裡邊看邊細閱,然後眺望首爾城郭和附近的山,然後還可以順著詩人之丘一直走到仁王山的步行徑。

We can read the poems written on the fences while we look at the views of the surrounding mountains and city walls, and walk towards Inwang mountain walking trail.
