Jeju Island gained a reputation as the “most erotic island” in Korea after the opening of several Sex and Health museums (as they are officially called), sex shops, and the Love Land erotic sculpture park. We were very surprised that in a relatively conservative South Korea, one can see such blatant erotic fantasies, embodied in statutes, photographs, paintings and, especially, in sculptures.

At the same time, some masterpieces of the art could be easily classified as erotica and be associated with porn. In other words, these two parts of the culture are connected.
