Dear Korean-Studies list:

Those of you not in Korea may not yet be aware that last night (Sunday, 10 February), 
Sungnyemun (Namdaemun), National Treasure #1, in Seoul burned down.  The entire two-storey 
wooden superstructure collapsed, and all that remains is the stone foundation.  A terrible 
loss to Korea.
