summer sonata nami island
While everyone are posting all about their christmas - and winter trip,here I am post all about my trip last summer to Nami Island,  Definitely not winter sonata , but summer sonata lol.

Nami Island or known as Namiseom /  남이섬 is distanced around 54 km from central Seoul which took about 2 and half hour by bus.The island itself has unique shape of half moon and is owned privately not by government ,that's why it's also called as Naminara Republic .In order to get in, you need to get a certain 'visa'. They also has their own national flag, coins, stamp,passport, and telephone card.

while it is also fun to leisurely walk around the so-called forest and maybe you can grab a soft ice cream as companion too. Although it's not winter nor autumn but being surrounded by these tall green trees on summer day made me feel all refreshed.

winter sonata statue at nami island
Bae Yong Jun -  Choi Ji Woo statue from the scene of winter sonata !
I think the reason behind why they still preserve this old statue here is probably because the drama itself, Winter Sonata is all time-favorite romantic korean drama and it was a starter of all those K-drama booming.

In the end, it's not Korea if you haven't visit this beautiful island. I'm glad for this chance and I want to revisit Nami island when the maple trees are blooming. And maybe, I can get a couple picture with my future husband too here <3

  1. I enjoyed reading your post. I first learnt about this island from watching a Korean show called We Got Married. I would like to watch Winter Sonata one day. I didn't know that the island was privately owned.
