Couple of months ago, my Korean cousin from Suwon came up to Seoul with her boyfriend. They stopped by, left their car in our apartment parking lot, and went up to visit N Seoul Tower (or Seoul / Namsan Tower). After reading this article, I wonder if they went up there to declare their eternal love for one another . . . much like the article said how couples would bring locks, lock it, and throw the key away.

As much as I find this really corny and wasteful, this discovery is actually tempting me to go back up to the Seoul Tower. That temptation itself is quite shocking since I have sworn never to go back up there after a field trip that traumatised me. And I do live close to it. Heck, I’m only five minutes away, by car, from the base of the mountain, so one of these days, I may go up there to see such a thing. Make that a day when I’m really bored, have a friend who’s willing to go with me, and when we do go up there, we are taking the cable car. I refuse to walk up there, which stems back to that childhood trauma of the place.

Actually, you guys here at Ningin can motivate me to go up there. Although, I don’t know if going up that high during winter’s a good idea or not. XD

?_?  I’m not afraid of the heights.  What traumatised me was that in third grade, we went up there for a field trip.  We climbed up the mountain . . . that was bad enough.  However, when it was time to go back to school, somebody had the bright idea to make all these third graders walk from the top of the tower to the school, which is . . . forty minutes away maybe?  It was long for that age group, and I remember it the pain and misery it caused.

I was really traumatised by it, haha. X_X;;

Sounds like the trip I had to the Statue of Liberty, I refused to walk to the crown.. I was like no way!

Then there was the school trip I had to the intrepid.. that was fun cause I had a panic attack and had was crawling on the deck. I spent the rest of the trip in the infirmary with some soldier doctor guys breathing in a brown paper bag.

Tara, I’m a little scared of heights too, so don’t feel too bad smile Perhaps the man of your dreams will emerge from a kimbap stand and sweep you off your feet, giving you the courage to make the climb while holding his strong hand (harhahrhar)


@Lan - Get your butt over here and we’ll go!

@SeniorForever - Uh, no?  Hence why I said I want to go up there with a friend. XD

@Jinra - Yeah it is a great exercise to climb up to go there.


I went last year, it was pretty neat. I would go for the exercise starting from the bottom.


So does this mean you have someone in your life Tara? raspberry


But really you can do it from home.


It’s romantic! Its like that hill in Japan where you can declare your life for your significant other.


Sadly yes. My parents did it once.


Do people really believe that?


You and I should go there. :D
