Kim Ja-In Set To Scale 555-Meter Tower In Seoul, South Korea
The Lotte World Tower is the sixth-highest man-made structure in the world, with 123 floors total. In 2013, Ja-in performed two similar stunts, climbing both the KNN Tower (128 meters) in Busan and the Lotte Department Store (84 meters) in Myeong-dong. Both towers pale in comparison to the 555-meter spire she plans to tackle this upcoming Sunday in South Korea's capital city.
When asked why Kim will be attempting the challenge, she replied, "I hope the challenge will give hope to our people going through hard times."
