Mount Namsan Seoul Tower, South Korea

Mount Namsan is very special to me and my wife. This is where I proposed my never ending love to her and she accepted it without thinking twice, because she is truly, deeply, madly in love with me (she never visits this blog anyway, and the only follower of this blog is me, so no problemo!)

Seoul Tower at Mount Namsan, seoul South Korea
Namsan Tower features many sites which were designed for a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. This park is popular for lovers, young and old, because this is the place of the famous love lock.

Promises? Messages? Curse? I don't know haha
Love locks work like this:

1. You and your lover will buy a lock, one lock for each of you.


2. You will write a sweet messages, or a love promises to her/him on the lock.

3. Find a suitable place anywhere in the love lock area (love lock area is only limited to the places designated by the management)

4. After finding a suitable place, lock the two locks together symbolizing your being one. (Sex is not the only medium for being one haha)

5. Then throw the keys down the mountain and be sure to hit the gardener, just kidding. Throwing the keys symbolizes that your locks will never be unlocked ever again (except by blow torch or a caterpillar bulddozer, or severe rusting)

6. Then visit the site again after months or years to see if your locks are still in there hehe. (In our case, we never did find our locks again).


Aside from the cheesy love locks, you will also witness the Seoul Cultural Show which will feature fight exhibitions from traditional soldiers of the Korean Dynasties with different types of weapons and hear the Seoul Traditional Music and Dance. The cultural show starts at 3 PM every day. 

There is also a light show which will feature the Namsan Tower itself by twilight.

Here are the images of Namsan that you might see in case you are planning to try those cheesy lines by John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo in the movie Scorpio Nights 3, Popoy bashing Basha.

such a dynamic city, and love the tower shots. i guess it is hard to find your locks again with too many other locks in there.

yes and we are not the only couple who tried to find the locks. you might see some couples searching for their locks too when you visit. maybe they believe that if they find the locks, their relationship is still strong or maybe they are just curious.
