Obongsan Cliff [오봉산 마당바위] or Obong Mountain Cliff is a cliff on Obong Mountain [오봉산]. Obong Mountain is located in the village Cheonchon [Cheonchon-ri/천촌리] in Gyeongju’s township Seo [Seo-myeon서면]. The cliff itself is a 5-minute walk away from Jusa-am Hermitage [주사암] that is located on top of the mountain.

Please note: Obongsan Cliff is not the official name of this place. We added a little bit of K-Dramaland parlance as it seems that there is no ‘official name’ for this place.
