At Last! Jamsil Lotte World Tower (Part 2)

When you go to Jamsil (잠실), you can find out some differences compared to before. Not only the construction of Lotte World Tower (롯데월드타워), but also you can find out sweet swans. When you go to Seokchon Lake (석촌호수), you can see huge two swans. Swans stare at each other and their beaks are touched. This makes us remind of shape of heart. Also, near these two big swans, there are several baby swans who stare at their mom.

These swans are in harmony with cherry blossoms, nature. By these, artist wanted to express love between family, etc. The artist who made sweet swans is Florentijn Hofman.

He is a world famous public artist. He became famous by Rubber Duck. In 2007, he showed Rubber Duck in whole world and this made people get interested of him. Rubber Duck was also displayed at Seokchon Lake in 2014. As you can see, most works of Forentijn Hofman are very huge. These big size catch people’s attention. It makes people feel surprised and also become happy.

Sweet Swans first displayed at April 1st. It displays until May 8th. Almost 4 million people came to Seokchon lake and watched Sweet Swans. Many people showed interest at Sweet Swans. Sweet Swans is not permanent display. Also, Seokchon Lake is very good to take a walk. Therefore, it is better for you to visit Seokchon Lake and watch swan families by walking around the lake.
