Have you ever been to a place where at first sight you’re wondering if it was blown directly out of a soap opera?
Nami Island is exactly that, and why not, it was where Winter Sonata was shot or at least most of the romantic scenes of the said Korea novela. There was even a marker for the place where the lead characters had their first kiss. Pardon me, I’m not a great fan of Korea Novelas so I have no idea as to what Winter Sonata is all about…it probably was a love story with a tragic ending where women exactly look alike (one reason I’m having a hard time watching Korean soap is the fact that I cannot exactly tell one character from the other). With or without Korea novela education I was still in awe seeing Nami.
It would probably take a half day or so to cover the whole island, but after the whole tour, one can acquire a million hours worth of memories . It was our first time experience with snow so it was very understandable that somehow we acted like kids being thrown in a strange playground.
The trip to Nami Island was something worth taking especially when you’re traveling with a loved one. Admit it, one way or the other we become suckers for romantic backgrounds, for selfies and k-pop poses and this place provides the needed encouragement.
