Seopjikoji is also located at the eastern shore of Jeju Island. The name came of the place was derived from the dialect of the Jeju, "Seopji" meaning a narrow piece of land, and "koji" for cape or peninsula. The shoreline was striking, showcasing volcanic rocks in different shapes, some of these were preserved and even had an observation deck.

There were no other tourists yet when we arrived here and once I stepped out of the car, I felt like I was shooting a Korean drama! The place looked so majestic! It was a vast green/brownish field without no trees in sight that was still lovely to the eyes.

The folk tale that surround this place was that a fairy would usually descend from heaven to bathe around Seopjikoji. The son of the Dragon King has fallen in love with her and wanted to marry her the first time he saw her. He was told by his father to stay put and do nothing for 100 days so that he could give his permission. However, on the last day, the waves rose high and a typhoon came, so the fairy was not able to come down from the heavens to attend their wedding. The son grieved and has eventually died, turning into a stone which is now called 'Seondolbawi'.

This place is also famous being another shooting location for a drama called 'All In', starring Song Hye Kyo and her ex-husband Lee Byung Hun. There was a separate admission fee to visit the house. The drama was filmed here last 2003 and this chapel was said to have been destroyed by a typhoon and was reconstructed afterwards.

Moving forward, you may be able to see a lighthouse that can give you a good birds eye view of the entire shoreline of Seopjikoji. It is closed for entry though.
The skies were still gloomy thus most of my pictures have this 'dark' atmosphere in them, rest assured though that you will enjoy it here, especially for people who enjoy natural landscapes.

The entrance to Seopjikoji is free, so more reasons to go! It's open 24 hours as well for those who are adventurous to go during night time. The place is booming with romantic atmosphere and it would be great to visit here with someone you could hands with amidst the strong wind especially during the cold weather of Korea. Jeju definitely lives up to being the romance island of the country especially with one special tourist spot like Seopjikoji.
