Yongduam is a representative tourist attraction in Jeju Island.
It is called Yongduam because it resembles the dragon’s head shape.
- Yong (meaning : Dragon) – Du (meaning : Head) -Am (meaning : Rock)
Situated on the northern coast in downtown Jeju, Yongduam Rock is an estimated 10-meter-tall stone that has been worn down over time by strong winds and waves into a shape resembling a dragon’s head. There are many legends surrounding the rock. One legend has it that a dragon stealing precious jade from Hallasan Mountain was shot down by an arrow from the mountain deity. When he fell down, his body immediately sank into the ocean and his head rapidly froze looking at the sky. Another legend has it that a white horse, who dreamed of being a dragon and ascending to the sky, came to be caught by a soldier and froze into the rock.From VisitKorea.or.kr
