A BIZARRE vacation spot in the core of South Korea’s Jeju island has accumulated worldwide enthusiasm for its exceptionally uncommon choices of entertainment. Here are the most peculiar photographs Penis Park.
The Haeshindang Park (해신당 공원), commonly known to outsiders as Penis Park, welcomes some 12,000 visitors every year with 60 percent of them women to the tiny volcanic island of Jeju.
Penis Park located in the beautiful coast of Sinnam, just off the southern tip of South Korea, the park sits on the eastern edge of the island in the small town of Sinnam in Samcheok.
Haesindang Park is home to almost 300 erect phallic statues which dedicated to the memory of a young virgin woman whose fisherman lover left her on rock while he caught fish at sea.
Needless to say, a storm came and she died. Because who leaves their virgin girlfriend stranded on a rock? Legend has it, after her death the villagers could no longer catch fish.
So they did the only thing you can do when a virgin dies in a storm, and built giant wooden penises to appease her spirit.
Strangely enough, the strategy worked, and the villagers were able to catch fish again. And so they continued to erect more carvings in her honor.
Now Haeshindang Park is a lovely tourist spot for South Koreans to frequent at their leisure.
