Hometown Special - Busan (Pu-san)
Taejeondae owes its name to King Taejong Muyeol of the Shilla Dynasty, as he lingered on this scenic spot after being struck by its breathtaking scenery. This hilly area is situated at the southeastern tip of Yeongdo that is 200 meters below sea level. The corroded cliffs comprising dense forests and oddly-shaped rock formations with the azure sea as the backdrop offer a picturesque scenery.
