Dear Ruediger,
What your friend is referring to is probably the 'Choosen koseki zufu' (Seoul/Keijoo: Choosen sootokufu, 1915), a fifteen-volume series documenting Korean monuments and relics in pictures. I wouldn't say that most of these have been destroyed, although their appearance has certainly changed dramatically in the course of the 20th century.

Dear list,

a friend of mine is searching for a book on cultural relics in Korea, 
containing photos of buildings that are mostly destroyed today. There was 
one such book made by the Japanese; does anybody know the exact title? 
Thanks for your help.
