Seopjikoji Hill (섭지코지)_Coastal cliffs Made by Wind and Waves
Seopjikoji Hill (섭지코지) has always been a must for first-time visitors to Jeju Island. Yellow canola flowers fill the fields in spring, creating a colorful contrast with the red soil, called scoria, cerulean sky and navy-blue ocean. The shoreline is covered with red volcanic rocks and interesting pebbles, and many of the rocks are of strange, spectacular shapes.
The scenery of Seopjikoji has also been captured in several Korean films and dramas, including ‘All In’, 'The Uprising', 'One Thousand and One Nights' and many others.
You can also appreciate two beautiful architectural designs by Tadao Ando, a world renowned Japanese Architect; the Glass House and Yumin Art Nouveau Collection. Tadao Ando has designed a number of buildings on Jeju that show off his unique trademarks while incorporating aspects of Jeju’s nature. A key feature of his designs on Jeju is the use of polished concrete.
