Seopjikoji Coast

The scenery at Seopjikoji was mesmerising. Seopjikoji offers pastoral scenery where the blue ocean, black cliffs and green pasture meet, forming a picturesque backdrop. As you walk along the fenced trail, to your right your will see the lovely ocean and striking cliffs, and to your left a wide green pasture with horses. Another attraction is the All-in House, a set for a popular TV show. The original house used as the set was destroyed by Typhoon Maemi in 2003. The house was rebuilt. You need to buy a ticket to enter the house. As you pass All-in House, you will find Hyeopjayeondae. “Yeondae” are beacon mounds where people lit signal fires in the past. Take it slow and enjoy the hike up the lighthouse, where you will be greeted with a gorgeous view of the area. Visitors used to enjoy the impressive view of Seongsan Ilchulbong from Seopjikoji, Unfortunately, a large-scale condominium complex now blocks some of the view. Below the cliff, a stone pillar stands on reddish black bedrock. Legend has it that a son of the Dragon King of the Sea grieving the loss of his love turned into the rock.
