South Korean online users have voiced shock at a set of images showing a water park literally packed with holiday makers. The images uploaded onto online communities were reportedly taken during the weekend at the Ocean World about 65 kilometers (39 miles) east of Seoul.

A heat wave has hit the Korean peninsula for weeks, sending many city dwellers going out to find cool places. The undying thirst for coolness coincided with the summer holiday season.

"If there is hell on earth, I am sure that this water park is the hell," said an online user called "Gooreumbbang". Another user, "Heavent", wrote: "This is surreal."

But "Dokki", who was actually at the water park, explained the situation. "That's when Ailee came to hold a mini-concert. There were so many people, I had to wait in line for two hours to get a ride on a water slide."
