Korea, Jeju island : 외돌개

Then I wanted to see the other waterfall but I didn't have too much time before taking to ferry back to Mokpo. So we went to 외돌개, 외돌개 is a 20 meters volcanic basalt pillar going out of the ocean, it was form from a volcanic eruption about 1.5 million years ago. The legend said that a general of the Korean army scared away the Mongolian invaders using it. The Mongolians soldiers were so scared of the giant rock soldier that they committed suicide.
외돌개 is also a filming location for 大長今 : Dae Jang Geum.
