What is Taejongdae?

Located in Busan, South Korea, it is one of the scenic spots where you can enjoy the ocean of Busan. It is said that the name Taejongdae comes from the fact that King Taejong Muyeol of Silla shot an arrow here a long time ago.

On clear days, it is said that you can even see the distant island of Tsushima with the naked eye.
I'm sure many people will be captivated by the blue sea that stretches out before them!
