Chapter Summary

Hardly anyone goes to Yŏnpʾyŏng to sightsee. Rather, travel agencies recommend Paengnyŏng Island. More Americans die from gun incidents than in wars. Humans devise and follow different lifestyles until they die in an effort to make birth and death meaningful, and these creations give rise to culture. According to the geography sections of "King Sejong's Chronicle", and the new expanded edition of "Maps of Korean Geography", croaker, rather than herring, was the most common seafood dish served in Korea during the Chosun Dynasty. Nature becomes a part of human culture through constant contact with human life throughout history. The Yŏnpʾyŏng Island lifestyle is based on the islanders' encounter and dialogue with the strange world of the sea. The first stop on the way to Paengnyŏng Island via fast boat is Sochʾŏ Island, where the sunrise through the fog is an impressive sight.
