Nami Island is famous not only because of their magnificent looking pine trees but also for this famed Korean drama series - Winter Sonata (It stars Choi Ji Woo and Bae Yong Joon). Have anyone ever watched it? Sssttttt..., I haven't even watched it myself. By the way, it doesn't matter we still can enjoy the beautiful and romantic landscape and plenty of sightseeing.
