Korea Trip Part 3

Continue from:

After lunch, we continued with our itinerary. We went to the Trick Art Museum which is only about 5 mins drive from the place where we had lunch. The Trick Art Museum is the first museum in Korea to show optical illusion art, and is located in Seogwipo City near the Seongeup Folk Village.

Exhibitions on the walls and floors inside are rendered in three dimensions. Exhibitions consist of seven themed sections: Parody Zone (showing famous paintings and sculptures), Animal Zone, Jurassic Zone, Aquarium Zone, Egypt Zone, Magic Zone, and Illusion Zone. Trick art renders two dimensional paintings in three dimensions by creating illusion. Each work looks differently when seen from different angles or spots. Its magic magnifies when seen from camera lenses. Visitors can take pictures with various fun poses blending nicely with exhibitions. Cameras as well as video equipment are permitted in the museum.

Can you see the optical illusion art? Can you see "milk" flowing into my hands?

The famous Mona Lisa.

Help me!!



I kinda like this photo =)

This is the small outdoor area.

After Trick Art Museum, we went to the O’Sulloc Museum, located on Jeju Island near Seogwangdawon. Admission is free. The entire building takes the shape of a green tea cup. It seeks to harmonize the cultures of the West and East, and past traditions with the modern world. Visitors can enjoy unique O'Sulloc tea there. The second floor of the building has an observatory, so visitors can enjoy the views of the nearby green tea fields and the surrounding landscape. Oh yeah. You can try all kinds of green tea associated goodies like cakes, ice-cream and biscuits. There are also many nice green tea beauty products!

 Beauty products.

 We tried the green tea ice-cream even though it is freezing out there. The ice-cream is quite okie.

We bought these from there. I quite like the Innisfree brand. Didn't see it in Singapore. Maybe I will go and check it out in SaSa next time.
