Jeju Loveland


With its clean beaches, tranquil environment and beautiful scenery, Jeju Island is known as a hotspot for romantic getaways. To further promote the island as a romantic destination, Jeju Loveland, an outdoor park featuring suggestive artwork and sculptures created by graduates from Hongik University, was opened in 2004.

Only visitors who are 18 years old and above are allowed to enter Jeju Loveland, and that applies to this article too. There are NSFW images coming up – make sure you are at least 18 years old to keep scrolling.


Take pictures with sensual and erotic sculptures

To encourage people to be more comfortable with topics related to sex, Jeju Loveland has multiple art installations where visitors can take pictures of themselves with naked statues engaging in sexual activities or in suggestive poses.

Jeju Loveland believes that having fun posing with such statues can help visitors embrace their sexuality and erase the taboo of sex.

The park takes the theme very seriously – even the signages are designed to look like genitals.

Light fixtures and furniture in the park are also quirky – there are peeing lamp posts and butt seats.

Since South Korea is a conservative country, such open displays of eroticism can be shocking to some. But Jeju Loveland has been receiving many visitors over the years.


Indoor gallery with souvenir shop

Located inside the park is also an indoor gallery that houses a souvenir shop in a mound-shaped building.
