Well, this weekend (January 7) if you’re in the Jungmun area of Seogwipo there’s a chance to see some wild and crazy ocean fun.
It comes in the form of a group of hearty individuals taking an icy dip at Jungmun Saekdal Beach. The annual Seogwipo Penguin Swim attracts dozens of participants and hundreds of onlookers. Fortunately, there’s plenty to do besides jumping in the South Sea, including kite flying, watching friendly traditional wrestling matches, eating hearty seaweed soup, and more.
Saekdal is a beautiful Jeju beach – some say the most beautiful on Jeju and even Korea! Even in winter it has a certain aesthetic charm that every day entices visitors from all over the world.
The event is organized by the Korea Tourism Organization and the Jeju Tourism Organization, and is free to the public. There’s plenty of parking, but due to the popularity of the event, it’s best to go a bit early.
The festivities kick off Saturday, January 7th at 9:30 a.m.
