The discussion of destroyed buildings reminded me of a question I have been long meaning to ask: what happened to the Indpenedence Gate (Tongnipmun) during the period of Japanese Colonial Rule? Was it allowed to stand as is? Was it taken down and subsequently re-constructed after liberation (only to be moved later to make room for tunnel construction)?
