JEJU ISLAND - 섭지코지 Seopjikoji

Trust me, you won't regret if you come visiting Jeju Island. This island has a lot of beautiful places that you can enjoy exploring. I have visited some of the beautiful places in the last year but still I didn't get tired to re-explore it again. This time is my third time in Jeju.  

Well, the place that I visited today is Seopjikoji. It is located along the eastern borders of the country in Seogwipo City.  They said Seopjikoji derives its name from two local terms Seopji, which is the former name of the area; and Koji, which in the local language translates as a sudden bump on land.

Didn't realize how burned I was until hours later 
On the way to Seopjikoji (섭지코지)
Yes, life is not easy but it's beautiful :)

This is the video that I took on the way go to Seopjikoji

On the open fields, there is alone building which is a church

If you are a Korean drama fever, you must remember 
which drama this place was appeared. 
This church used for filming one of the famous Korean drama 
"All In” (올인 in Korean)

Beautiful view of the blue ocean and rocky shore. 
If you see well this picture, you will find there is a Seondol rock or 
"sticking out" in English

According to legend of Seopjikoji, there was a nymph who used to bathe at Seojikoji. One day, the youngest son of the King of heaven saw the nymph and begged his father to arrange a marriage. The king promised him to do that if he waited for 100 days. But, the nymph didn't show up on the 100th day because of wild waves and gusts of wind. So, the King told his son that his dedication wasn't good enough to move heaven. In the end, the sorrowful son then became a rock, standing upright at Seopjikoji

Far there is a solitary light house at the end limit of Seopjikoji in Jeju

This is just amazing! You can see how beautiful the shape of Seongsan Ilchubong

High fly jump in the sky and enjoy the fresh air 
이거 찍느라고 남친이 좀 수고를했다. 옆에서 사람들 막 다 쳐다보고...ㅋㅋㅋ

"하트 벤치" 
용왕의 막내아들과 선녀의 사랑 이야기가 전해져 오는 선녀바위 선녀바위가 
내려다보이는 하트벤치에서 사랑을 고백하세요
선녀바위 "슬픈 사랑의 전설"

"바람의 언덕" 
섭지코지 자연 그대로를 간직한 곳으로 제주바다와 선돌바위, 
방두포 등대까지 빼어난 절경을 한 눈에 내려다 볼 수 있습니다

"행복한 문"
대형 거석문을 통과하며 세가지 소원을 모두 빌면 
모두 이러우진다는 전설를 가지고 있습니다

The weather wasn't that kind. Because the day before it was raining, so it's so hot today. Guess what, I got really tan after exploring this place. Even though, I really enjoyed my last day in Jeju by visiting this place and others.
