What can we say but... WISH YOU WERE HERE!

Namisum (Nami Island) is a tiny half-moon shaped island located in Chuncheon, South Korea, formed as it was inundated by the rising water of the North Han River as the result of the construction of Cheongpyeong Dam (청평댐) in 1944. Its name originated from General Nami who died at the age of 28 after being falsely accused of treason during the reign of King Sejo, the seventh king of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea. Although his grave wasn't discovered, there were a pile of stones where his body was supposed to be buried. It was believed that if someone took even one stone from there, it would bring misfortune to their house. A tour company arranged the grave with soil and then developed Namisum into an amusement park. (details from Wikipedia). 

We have to jump on a giant boat for a 10-minute ride to reach Nami Island. The place is popular because of Winter Sonata (a Koreanovela). Me and my friends went gaga over the flags. We even named as many flags as we can and in the end - laughed our hearts out over some silly nothings! The temperature when we went there feels like -12 degrees (approx) but we had so much fun! The culture of South Korea and everything about it - I love! Here are some random pics from our not-so-recent trip: -CMK.
