10 Million Visit Lotte World Tower in 100 Days

Korea's tallest building, the new Lotte World Tower skyscraper, has attracted more than 10 million visitors in the 100 days since it opened.

An average of 120,000 people visited the 123-story tower and mall every day since its opening on April 3, Lotte Corporation said Tuesday.

Seoul Sky, the observatory on the 118th floor, has drawn 450,000 visitors so far, and more than 3 million moviegoers visited the cinema in the building last year, another record for the country.

"Sales at the Lotte Tower mall excluding the duty-free shop have increased over 20 percent on-year since it fully opened in April", Lotte said. "It seems that the new landmark has contributed to attracting more visitors and boosting sales of outlets".

The new Lotte World Tower skyscraper that opened on April 3 has attracted 3.62 million visitors so far, Lotte said Monday. That boils down to 130,000 visitors a day on weekdays and 200,000 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Choi Young at Lotte said the results surpassed expectations by 20 percent even though the number of Chinese visitors dropped drastically amid an unofficial Chinese boycott.

The 123-story skyscraper is the tallest building in Korea.

A total of 138,000 people came to visit the observation deck atop the tower, the third highest in the world. Thanks to the influx of visitors, Lotte World Mall across the street also saw revenues rise.

Rock climber Kim Ja-in will attempt to scale Korea's tallest building, the Lotte World Tower in Seoul, on Saturday. She is looking to become the first woman to climb a skyscraper taller than 500 m.

Announcing the event on Monday, Lotte said Kim will climb the 123-story, 555-m-tall tower wearing safety gear but without footholds.

In 2013, she scaled the 128-m-tall KNN building in Busan.
