Yeosu transforms to the seven beaches of the world.
At the Expo Digital Gallery (EDG), visitors can experience the beautiful landscapes of seven world’s famous seas including the Dead Sea, Greenland, Capri, and Busan. Charles de Meaux, the renowned producer and his people collected these sounds and images to create an extraordinary film in contribution to Shin-ji-ke. The images and sound of the seven beautiful seas will make her story more fulfilled.
Shin-ki-ke Yeo is a Korean mermaid from Geomun-do. Unlike the mermaids that kidnap and harm sailors, she is the guardian who warns an upcoming storm by throwing rocks into the sea. Otherwise, she usually appears singing at Yeo Reef of Geomundo.
