Amazed by the Locks of Love at N Seoul Tower

The highlight of our visit to N Seoul Tower was the Locks of Love. I was amazed how much locks were installed in this area!


A love lock or love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts' names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolise unbreakable love. Since the 2000s, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide. They are often treated by municipal authorities as litter or vandalism, and are costly to remove.

The idea of hanging locks originated from local tourists a few years ago who saw the same thing at Tokyo Tower. It is now enjoying a renewal after two TV stars, singer Alex and model Sinae, were seen dating there in the MBC reality program ``We’ve Got Married.’’ N Seoul Tower’s ``Locks of Love’’ event was chosen as a reunion venue for the celebrities on June 15 and since then has drawn great public attention.

Since we wanted to "declare" our love to each other once again, well, we brought our own padlock too!



This is when I realized that Koreans are romantics. Wherever we went to this area, love declarations were everywhere. I found it very sweet and memorable. Something I will cherish for years. Happy and thankful to be able to see Locks of Love in person. ♥
