N Seoul Tower's A Lock of Love

The locks at the viewing deck of N Seoul Tower has become so famous that a marker has been erected at the site. It reads:

A Promise for Endless Love “I Love You.”.
From old times, there was a story that if lovers make a wish at a shrine on Nam-San (Mt. South), it comes true. Since that, this place became a symbol of the place of promising an everlasting love for couples with hanging a lock together. A Lock of Love, already famous by media, is not just expressing couples’ love by hanging locks, but meaning endless love with experiencing unforgettable moment in the place you can see a view of Seoul.
Now N SEOUL TOWER is the icon of love and friendship with family and friends as well as love stories of “A Lock of Love.” We will remember your precious moment @N SEOUL TOWER.

Aside from the locks and the marker, nothing has really changed at the viewing deck. There is more graffiti and a few benches, which look like rustic furniture, have been added. Here is a post I did on the Locks of Love two years ago.
