The Locks of Love (located at 2nd floor of the N Plaza, at the Roof Terrace) is a popular location for people to hang locks that symbolize eternal love, and has been depicted in many Korean television shows, dramas, and movies.
OMG at the numbers of locks!

We bought the Observatory Package (Teddy Bear Museum + N Seoul Tower Observatory) for ₩14,000.
The Teddy Bear Museum exhibits the history of Seoul from past to present through the use of teddy bears. It is an amusing and innovative way to see how Seoul has changed and developed over time, both as the capital of Korea and as an international city. Teddy bears are posed in scenes recreating historic events as well as various aspects of Seoul life. There are two galleries in the museum: Seoul History Center and Special Center of Seoul.

We then headed to take the lift to the observatory tower, where there was a short animation shown on the top of the lift. N Seoul Tower offers panoramic views of Seoul and the surrounding areas.
I was missing my country when we found this!
You can send a letter back to your country!
The view at the observatory deck is really stunning! I would go back there one day when I have a boyfriend to place a couple lock!
