Welcome to South Korea’s ‘penis park’ (Picture: BBC)

Race Across The World viewers have been left shocked and convinced they’ve misheard a particular location’s name in South Korea.

But after seeing what two contestants were literally sat on, it was hard to deny.

Best friends Alfie and Owen were racing across the East Coast of South Korea, attempting to reach their second checkpoint Sokcho when they stopped in Samcheok, home of the penis park.

Yep, you read that right.

The best friends had some time to kill for sight-seeing, so opted to visit the famous Haesindang Park, remarking that the penis statues clearly brought tourists ‘from far and wide’.

‘I don’t know how to describe the penis park other than, it’s got a lot of penises,’ Alfie remarked, as he climbed on top of and sat on one of the genitals.

‘What a sight to behold this is,’ Owen replied, as they wished for luck from the legendary park.

Viewers were in hysterics after hearing about the special park, with actor Richard Price writing: ‘Alfie and Owen making memories in that special park in South Korea #topchoice.’

‘The Penis Park bit in #RaceAcrossTheWorld is already one of the funniest bits of television this year. Easily,’ Alexander added.

David echoed: ‘I think the “two tickets to the penis park please ” line should go down in television folklore.’

‘PENIS PARK??????? WHAT IS GOING ON?!!!!!’ Francesca wrote.

Villagers carved sculptures in some phallic shapes to sustain ‘good luck’ after a legend stated that a fisherman brought back the village’s hope of catching fish after urinating into the sea.

Alfie and Owen are up against two mother-daughter duos, Eugenie and Isabel, and Brydie and Sharon, married couple Stephen and Viv, and brother-sister pair Betty and James.

The teams are racing across 15,000 kilometres in several countries,  travelling from Japan to Lombok against the clock, and leaving behind their smartphones, any internet access and bank cards in the hope of winning a £20,000 cash prize.

Race Across The World airs Wednesdays at 9pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
