The Third Tunnel Model, Unifying the Earth: A Message of Peace and Happiness
  • Though visitors may regret not being able to take photos in the tunnel, there is a model of the Third Tunnel complete with life-sized statues of Military Policemen wearing “Military Police” armbands that every Korean Wave fan will recognize from the movie Joint Security Area and the TV drama Descendants of the Sun.

    After taking some photos, why not take a good look at the “Unifying Earth” sculpture in the middle of the Third Tunnel square.

  • Created to express hopes for a unified Korea and world peace, the sculpture consists of a big arch representing a Korean railway line that will cross the Korean peninsula to Europe and two hemispheres desiring unification.

    You can create some amusing poses for photos by pushing the hemispheres from both sides. Here visitors will feel the message of peace and happiness amid vestiges of opposition and conflict that have existed ever since the Korean War broke out on 25 June 1950, and feel our hopes for a brighter future on the Korean Peninsula.
