DAY 3 (Namiseon Island & Chuncheon, Gangwon-do province)

    • Look-out: Winter Sonata’s filming locations

This place is the main reason why South Korea marked my bucket list. O yes, i’m a big fan of Winter Sonata, a drama series from South Korea. It was characterized by Bae Yoon Jun as Jun Sang and Choi Ji Woo as Eu Jin. The series tells a story of young individuals finding their first love in a bizaare situation. Nami Island has been the love sanctuary of the main characters. Shot entirely during autumn and winter season. It features the most romantic settings ever.

Since then, Nami has been one of the most visited parts in South Korea. They even have the gallery & themed restaurants. The filming locations were highlighted in the area. The key points are interpreted by pictures, drawings and souvenirs of their first Date. They have statues of the couple aswell.
