The late Sim Jae-duck was himself born in a toilet and had an affection for loos throughout his life, rigorously promoting public facilities while mayor.

Sim also founded the World Toilet Association and wrote a book entitled "Happy to Be With You, Toilet." He died of prostate cancer in 2009.

The park opened earlier this year and is now attracting foreign interest. It features Sim's toilet-shaped home, the Mr. Toilet House, which is now a museum dedicated to loos.
