Only 4 days left until the Winter Olympic Torch arrives in PyeongChang!

And you can bet JKS will attend as many skiing and snowboarding events as his schedule permits. I can picture him now, eyes gleaming, watching snowboarders fly through the air, twisting, turning, and performing aerial somersaults...and being thoroughly enthralled.

Today the torch is in Samcheok. Gangwon Province offers such a diversity of destinations and Samcheok is one of them. It is home to one of the largest limestone caves in Asia: beautiful scenery of the mountains and ocean.

Plus it is home to Haesindang Park, a famous known for its phallic statues. A tragic legend known as the "Legend of Auebawi and Haesindang" shrouds the statues of the park. According to the legend, a woman was once left by her man on a rock in the sea while he worked, the man was later unable to retrieve her because of a storm, and the woman drowned. After that, the village people were not able to catch fish. Some said that it was because of the dead woman. One day a fisherman ejaculated into the water and afterwards he was able to catch fish, so it was thought that exposing the deceased virgin to male genitalia pleased her. To soothe her spirit further, the local village people made several phallic wooden carvings and held religious ceremonies on her behalf. After a while, the fish slowly returned and the villagers were able to live comfortably again. The place where the woman died was named Aebawi Rock and the building where the religious ceremony is held twice a year was named Haesindang. The ceremony is still honored today as a traditional folk event.
