The Japanese authorities constructed their empire in Korea (1910–45) along lines that echoed and repurposed the traditions of Joseon (as Korea was formerly known). They attempted to signify their power through physical construction projects associated with their empire-building project, in particular in Seoul, the colonial Korean capital. As Japan deliberately targeted Korean traditional buildings, either replacing them with modern Japanese architecture or destroying them, Seoul became the centre of a conflict between Korean tradition and Japanese modernisation. Hence, Japan’s invasion of Korea was a critical turning point in Seoul’s physical and symbolic transformation, and Japanese colonial memories were inscribed in the city’s landscape.
This paper seeks to understand how South Korea has reconstructed Seoul’s post-colonial landscape through its treatment of the Japanese architectural legacy after liberation. In particular, this paper focuses on four case studies of locations which are regarded as the critical points of Seoul’s landscape: 1) the Grand Shrine of Joseon (South, religious), 2) the Japanese Government-General Building (North, political), 3) Seodaemun Prison (West, political), and 4) Dongdaemun Stadium (East, cultural). This study investigates how they have been differently managed and how their visual representation and symbolic meanings have been changed. In addition, it examines which factors affect the diverse outcomes experienced by each, and accounts for how these different management approaches related to with the handling of South Korea’s traumatic colonial memories, and whether these treatments either heal or twist the national trauma.
