The pensive moods of Jeju Island
Travel photographer Kyung-Woo Jun shows why the volcanic island is such a popular getaway spot
Crowned by Hallasan, Korea's highest mountain at 1,950 metres, Jeju Island's scenery caused it to be chosen as a finalist for the controversial 2007 New Seven Wonders campaign launched by a Swiss-based foundation.
Jeju's subtropical climate and beaches have made the volcanic island a popular vacation destination for Koreans and foreigner tourists alike.
The weather is marked by a severe monsoon season in the summer and tends to be extremely windy all-year round, but that doesn't make it any less photogenic.
