Trip to Yeosu Expo 2012 (6 of 12): Hapcheon Image Theme Park, Translation Agencies

The film set at Hapcheon Image Theme Park has not just one, but two, translation office facades. The top one, in green letters, is named "International Translation".

The bottom one is Hanbonglim Office, and they offer English-language translation for a number of purposes, including documents, international marriage, passports, visas, general travel and adoption processing. This is clearly in a 1970s-1980s style, and shows what objectives translation might have generally been used for back then. This is also the spot from a gang fight in Light and Shadows.
