Yongma Falls Park/Yongma Waterfall Park [용마폭포공원], colloqually known as Yongpok [용폭], is a public municipal park at the feet of Yongma Mountain [용마산/龍馬山] where the artificial Yongma Waterfall — the tallest waterfall —in eastern Seoul can be found. It is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Myeonmok [Myeonmok-dong/면목동] in the Jungnang District [Jungnang-gu/중랑구].

The park was established in 1991 under the name Yongmasan Park [용마산공원] or Yongma Park [용마공원] in an abandoned quarry that was operated by Seoul Metropolitan Government. Aside from the climbing rock wall, it also has other sports facilities, along with a garden that serves as a resting place for visitors, a waterfall plaza, and an observation deck.

The 30m square round concrete structure seen in the background in Hello, Me! is a public art piece titled ‘Oval Headquarters (타원본부)’ by artist Jeong Ji-hyun (정지현), who won the Seoul Metropolitan Government first ‘Public Art Citizen Idea Implementation Project (공공미술 시민아이디어 구현 프로젝트)’. The art work was inaugurated on October 12th, 2019.
