Lost landscape redux

Years ago I posted about Kim Ki-chan's book "Lost Landscape," in which this photo, taken in modern-day Bucheon, was published:

Jung-dong, Bucheon, 1976.3.21

In the spring of 2015 I noticed her on the wall of the rail underpass east of Yonsei's main gate, amid the other graffiti: 

As can be seen, the person who painted next to, and slightly over her, chose to leave her intact. But not the person after that. It was a lovely addition while it lasted, and made me smile every time I passed it.
