Entertainment 2020-02-21

It is such a famous landmark in Seoul and everyone in Korea knows about this place. It is called Lotte World and it is a huge complex mall located in the Songpa-gu area in Seoul. It is 123-story building with 555 meters in height. There are countless entertaining places and shops including this aquarium. If you love animals in the ocean, you should definitely visit this place. You will realize that this place is full of surprises.


I was told that they have over 650 species and 55,000 marine animals in there so it is literally a small beautiful world with living creatures. They have the largest seawater tank in Korea and the quality of its seawater is the highest level with life supporting system. It is amazing. You’ll see that it is amazing, beyond description.



This is the Lotte World Tower, the supertall skyscraper and it’s currently the tallest building in Korea. I heard that it’s the 6th tallest building in the world.



The aquarium is in B1 and they have their own aquarium program but they look like kids’ programs.



I thought it was a painting. They look so peaceful in there and beautiful.



Did you notice something from the first photo? It’s an alligator. He looks like he’s living in the jungle, ha.



They’re the notorious piranhas and they’re probably the scariest fish in the world. I know it’s fake but why do they have the skeleton in the water?



They have an aquarium tunnel so you can see so many marine animals while you walk in the tunnel. They provide very long moving line with the length of 840 meters.



You can feed the carp in your sight but you need to buy their food. It’s called Carp Bottle Feeding.



Oh, look at the otters’ family. They look so cute. Would they notice that we’re watching them?



They also have a robotic fish. So it can actually swim in the water!? Interesting!



I love them. I’ve always had dreams of Finding Nemo!



Nope! It’s not a scary movie!
