There's a Saying

My colleagues and I explored today and went to a new place for lunch. On the way there near City Hall station, we walked by a palace surrounded with people sitting outside sipping coffee. Beautiful day!

Apparently though, the walkway surrounding the palace has this saying, almost like a Korean urban legend.

If a couple walks down this walkway together, then their relationship will not last long.
I asked, but I didn't get a real answer. 
"Just because."
That's what they've heard and how it's always been.

Guess I won't be walking there with anyone I'll ever date. 


P.S. I just found out as well this is one of the most common superstitions. Check out this link for more information:
