the safest wall in Seoul

    Newer Older

    Chains of love at Seoul's Namsan Tower. Young couples show their love for each other by locking a pair of padlocks to this fence. I guess they keep a key each or toss the keys over the edge (maybe more romantic but probably less practical)

    I'd been here before but this has clearly taken off more recently - they're running out of room on these fences now. (Almost time for the Boltcutters of Love....)

      I noticed that this photo has been getting a little attention recently - James posted it to Tumblr and it's been re-posted all over the place. (As well as having received 30,000 comments on that single Tumble blog.) Once I started looking for it, I was amazed at how many places this is showing up. (Try a google search for "the safest wall in Korea" or "the safest wall in Seoul"!!)

      The Tumblr posts aren't linking here, but a few people have found this page via Google. Thanks to those who make the effort to track down the original source....

      Hey, I don't know if my previous comment posted on here. But I am sorry for using your photo without acknowledging you. I'm new to tumblr and I thought I had already put your link at the bottom when I posted the picture too. I googled this place because on of my cousins had recently visited there but his photos were horrible lol. I'm sorry if you feel cheated. But the photo has been reblogged by so many different people before me when I checked as well. I hope you get the credit you deserve, its a great photo. Well your link is for sure on the post and I am really sorry. Hope there are now hard feelings. And id just look around for more cause someone added a .gif to it and its quite funny. Its of a girl trying to cut off one of the padlocks lol

      Once again, I'd like to apologize for the mistake. I honestly had thought I added your flickr link to the picture. I am really sorry. It is a great picture and I do hope you get your credit. I sort of know what it is like to get cheated and I hate that feeling, so I am really sorry.

      Hey James - no worries at all and no need to apologise! It's great that so many people are seeing the photo - and using it for all sorts of things. (About 2000 people saw the photo here - waaaaay more saw it on your blog!)

      I appreciate you adding the link - many thanks.

      This is an incredibly sweet concept. The focus is great here, and the bright colours from the different padlocks are lovely.
