Two nice videos I found showing some interior shots of the tower, as well as the observation deck. The glass floor already makes me nervous by just looking at it from a video!

Normally I don't care for fireworks, but that looked so good, and I'm loving the idea of a future fireworks competition between LWT and the Hyundai tower. Could be quite the spectacle !

I wonder how amazing it would be to be inside one of the hotel rooms during the fireworks.

I know this is an off topic question, but why is the amount of likes you received not being displayed anymore? It may be just me, but I can't find the number of likes I received, and I also can't look at the people who liked my post. The same goes for others post, too. Maybe this is only happening to me because I did something wrong? Was there a rule change that I was not aware of?

That's odd. I don't think this is an April Fools joke. Was there an official announcement about this?

Yes, they have uploaded the website, and they ran into some problems with the like buttons, so they disabled it for the time being until it's fixed apparently.

For information, I also went to see the show yesterday. I made what was probably a mistake in retrospect, and went to see it at Ttukseom Resort. There is a clear view of the tower, and it was probably less crowded than at Seokchon Lake, but it was kind of far and I feel like I missed a bit of the show.

I think this video might be the best one to feel like how it was at the foot of the tower:

Thanks for telling me that. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I think they should implement a way to directly notify the users if such things happen. Anyways, that was a great video! Shame I missed the event.

I take these photos in my favorite secret spot around lwt.
But I surprised that Many other people waiting in there when i go there.
How can they know that this place? lol

Second Tons of thousand korean gather in there and see what landmark it is!!
so far most 90% korean hate and even curse this beautiful tower.
but by this great event dramatically changed korean's distorted perspective about skyscraper. So now anti skyscraper seoul mayor and his supporters lost their basement from mass citizens.
So Seoul's future bright and more skyscraper will be rise up since Lotte tower's effect!

I'm really appreciated Mr shin guk ho who built this landmark.

Lotte tower is first landmark in the world which built by pure civil company.(not by government or public).

Unfortunately Mr shin guk ho didn't participated in this event but we will remember his ambition and contribute about skyscraper.

BTW I'm sure this will be "thing must to see in seoul!" in trip adviser.

I never see this kind of gorgeous fire work.

I wonder how the fireworks look like from the observatory platform with the transparent floor.
Must be interesting to stand in that a glass box, surrounded by 500m of flames, lasers and and explosions.

From CTBUH press releasse today: Seoul Skyscraper Is Fifth Tallest Worldwide. The 555-meter building is now the tallest in South Korea and its completion has nudged Kuala Lumpur’s 452-meter Petronas Twin Towers, once the world’s tallest buildings, out of the Top 10 for the first time since they completed in 1998.

South Korea's Tallest Building Opens With a Bang
Quote:
Another supertall has risen in Asia, this time in Seoul, where a colourful display of fireworks marked the completion of the 556-metre-tall Lotte World Tower. Now the fifth tallest building in the world, the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed skyscraper boasts a number of record-breaking amenities that set the standard for mixed-use integration.
