The light may exist as the dark exists. The urban days and nights are bright. A feeling of endless deepness may be possessed in the dark.  Lighting apparatus store is not a  container with bright lights but the space that radiate dim lights from the dark  although it is not clear what exists in it. Insadong is deep. This store is also deep.
