Sunrises on Seongsan Ilchulbong are spectacular, but the a volcanic cone that rose from under the sea 5,000 years ago provided the backdrop for another stunning sight on Sunday when 3,000 people from Jeju Island formed a gigantic N7W JEJU image to celebrate the handing over of official certificate of candidacy to this Finalist in the New7Wonders of Nature Campaign.

Chung Un-chan, chairman of the National Commission for Jeju New7Wonders of Nature accepted the ornate certificate from Bernard Weber, Founder and President of New7Wonders. Other dignitaries present included, Woo Keun-min, the Governor of Jeju, and Chung Byoung-gug, the Korean Minister for Culture and Tourism.

“Humans, culture and history come together here in Jeju, and the island has seven different natural places including volcanoes, waterfalls and caves,” Chung Un-chan said.

“There is a special energy in Jeju,” Bernard Weber said, thanking the people of the island for their enthusiastic support of the New7Wonders ideal. “This energy can be felt by the wind; it’s contained in the volcanic rocks; it’s present in the hospitality and it can be felt by the visitor.”

He praised the Jeju Official Supporting Committee for its dedication and encouraged the members to take their campaign to a global audience as they seek the kind of support that could make a critical difference come 11 November.
