“Woo Young-woo’s whale appeared on Sevit Island in the Han River!”

A large humpback whale appeared on Sevit Island. Of course, it is a large sculpture that reproduces an actual humpback whale.

Seoul Tourism Foundation (CEO Gil Ki-yeon) has rolled up its sleeves to revitalize tourism in Seoul by utilizing K-content. The Han River K-Content Festival ‘Stunning Han River’ was planned and opened on the 8th.

The foundation planned this festival with the goal of allowing both Seoul citizens and tourists to enjoy the combination of the Han River, Seoul’s representative tourist resource, and K-content, which domestic and foreign tourists are passionate about.

The installation of the humpback whale from last year’s hit drama ‘Weird Lawyer Woo Young-woo’ as the main sculpture attracted attention, and the response was increased by allowing people to directly experience traditional games that appear in the drama, such as ‘Squid Game’.

The 25m long humpback whale becomes more ‘active’ at night. After turning on at 5 PM every day, a 5-meter-high water fountain spouts out every 30 minutes from 6 PM to 9 PM, and its fins and tail move vigorously.

Younghee from ‘Squid Game’ and heterosexual cells from ‘Yumi’s Cells’ were each created as 4m high sculptures. These sculptures also come on from 5 p.m.

At the opening ceremony on this day, a pre-performance and lighting performance were held. At the opening event, Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon and actress Joo Hyun-young, who appeared in ‘Weird Lawyer Woo Young-woo’, attended and participated in the performance.
