Tower

“Namsan Seoul Tower is one of Seoul's most famous landmarks and one of the city's most beloved attractions. The views from the tower are beautiful but the night views are especially breathtaking. Visitors can take in incredible panoramic views of Seoul from the tower's observatory. The tower has been used as a filming location in many Korean TV shows and movies. One of the tower's attractions is the locks of love that visitors fasten to Namsan's iron railings.”
