Once outside of the studio, he looks at the photos and a flood of memories he shared with Na Jung-sun (Jung Na-ra) comes rushing over him, and he begins to cry.

Lighthouse Tintype Studio [등대사진관] — or Lighthouse Tintype, Lighthouse Photo Studio — is a photo studio that specializes in a special technique called ‘tintype photography‘, which is partly where it gets its name from. It is located at Ichon-ro 29-gil [이촌로29길] in Seoul’s neighborhood Hangangno [Hangangno-dong/한강로동] in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu /용산구], a short walk away from Railway Liquor Store [기찻길주점].

Getting here
Yongsan Station [용산역], Gyeongui Jungang line, Exit 1 (11 min walk) / Sinyongsan Station [신용산역], Seoul Subway Line 4, Exit 3 (14 min walk).

From the Yongsan Station exit, head to the street behind the Dragon Hill Spa (드래곤힐스파), which is right next to the station. The entrance of the street is between the spa and Shilla I’PARK Duty Free  (신라아이파크면세점) – keep walking straight for about 10-15 minutes and you should reach the train tracks. It’s a slightly longer walk from Sinyongsan station, which takes you around the peripherals of the area.
