2. Locks of Love
Though it’s now a familiar sight in romantic cities around the world, Seoul can proudly say it was one of the first to play host to “Locks of Love.” Likely inspired by a similar installation in Tokyo, these Locks of Love are located in the grounds of N Seoul Tower, and remain an irresistible attraction for visiting couples. Packed along the fences of the tower grounds, the fastened locks are inscribed with messages of peace, hope, love, and the initials of couples hoping for the gift of forever with their beloveds.
