“Lovers under the Moon,” drawn by Shin Yun-Bok
On a still night illuminated only by a crescent moon, a young seonbi with a lamp meets with a woman whose head is covered by her outer garment. At the secluded corner of a stone wall, the woman shyly tilts her head downward with a knowing expression on her face, while the man searches his clothes for something to give his companion, as if to calm her. Despite the strict rules at the time governing relations between the sexes, there is no doubt that these two young people are well aware of each other’s affections. This painting masterfully depicts how young love grows deeper together with the night.
