Apparently water was found leaking from the glass in the aquarium. It's currently quite a big story... this sort of thing worries me though. It shouldn't be happening.

I think the construction of Lotte World Tower was an idea of a brilliant scriptwriter. This is perfect for a korean TV-Drama.

Holes, accidents, aquariums exploding. My 2 cents: "Sharknado 2: Panic on Jamsil Lake"

Yeah, it's definitely beginning to seem like there are actual problems with the mall (if not the whole thing)

WOW, drywall and Fish Glass, are having people thinking this Tower,, is Unsustainable, Seriously, Ceiling's and Aquariums, are so much different than foundations. I hope the people that do not speak English,, know that a fish's home and the ceiling above the floor you're in
Speak nothing to the Massive Foundation that support's this building,,, a crack in some glass, or on a ceiling,,,??? What is that?
It has nothing to do with the structure of this Building.
People nitpick at the tiniest thing's, A lot of thing's will crack for Year's due to this Beast settling in it's foundation.

Come on Shaddorry,, You are better than this, why are you re-posting this?

I don't think that's the point people are making. Their concerns arise from the fact that if problems exist in something like the aquarium, could there be bigger problems elsewhere.

Though I don't agree with the media hype around it all, I guess people's concerns are not so illogical.

the constructor of aquarium is Reynolds Polymer Technology from USA.
If there any problem with the aquarium, the lawsuit between Lotte vs. Reynolds might happens.

the explanation of Reynolds are as belows :

Quote:
Reynolds Polymer Technology, which built the aquarium, said cracks and leaks are frequently found in new aquariums and repaired.
https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/new...16_169594.html
Would anyone check out that any aquarium on the other countries confront this leak problem right after constructing for the example?

We deserve to believe the specialty of Reynolds as the number one builder in the aquarium section, but Korean medias deny to believe the explanation of Reynolds.
Then we should check the fact first instead of hearing a hyper.

Nice update. Love these charts. One building that is missing though is the Ichon Rex Tower A, standing at 201m (it's currently topped out or about to be).

I love what mussoda saying He is really clear explanation about fact and problem. Better than me. especailly great high class english make clear issuse.
I saw that foreign company saying in TV news. his face is korean but he speaking broken korean speaking like a 교포.
LWT is many other country participated on project. SWISS, UK, JAPAN, USA, HOLLAND etc.
Mass media always complain about LWT. they like hyena they seek a problem in this beautiful tower. Like a 24 HOUR hovering UAV. LOL
UAV on line!!!! New battlefield 5

Good to see Kanto resurface,, but this thread is filled with so many people hating on this construction, and every little flaw,,, Why would people NOT want this? I'm just puzzled..
I'm done here. Why do so many people want to see this Fail???
I remember Inno saying too many people listen to the Mayor and his hatred for skyscraper's and that's rubbing off on former's.
Inno4321 I'll miss you brother, see you on another thread.
