Heal Your Inner Child, The Rubber Duck Project - Seokcheon Lake


"The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!"

“러버덕 프로젝트에는 국경도 경계도 없다. 사람을 차별하지도 않으며 어떠한 정치적 의도를 가지고 있지도 않다. 러버덕은 치유의 속성을 지닌다. 물 위에 다정하게 떠있는 오리를 보면 저절로 치유되는 것을 느끼게 된다. 나는 이 러버덕 프로젝트를 통해 전 세계의 긴장이 해소될 수 있다고 믿는다.“ - 플로렌타인 호프만 -


The supersize rubber duck made its first appearance in the Netherlands in 2007as the brainchild of Florentijn Hofman, Dutch artist, the duck has visited 14 cities across the world including Osaka, Sydney, and Hong Kong, gathered much love and support from people all around the world.

From October 13 to November 14 this yellow rubber duck brought to Seoul to celebrate the opening of the Lotte World Tower in Jamsil, which expected to be the highest building in Korea, i have seen a lot of picture around instagram and internet about this cutie monstrous size duckie and finally i can go there and snap a few picture, well since its weekend of course there were a lot of people that want to meet this cutie monster and we need to queue in order to be more closer with him... he's so cutee arghh

To meet this squeeky buddy, from subway you can go off at jamsil station (잠실역 2호선) line 2 exit 3 or exit 2, go straight and then turn left when you see the intersection and then turn left to go to the seokcehon lake where he lives.

Angie Karan, said that "there is a children in all of us, no matter what the number may say or how old someone looks they started as a child, and the child lives inside... Love your Inner Child, as you connect to the beautiful inner child the miracles happen, let your inner child run wild, Remember the days you were innocent and carefree and discover that you are still that hopefully, wide eyed kid at heart"

And, yeah this little fella does heals and reminds me to my childhood memories...
Thanks for the beautiful project that somehow in its ownway relieved me from my own tension
Have a Good Day~
