Also known as Some Sevit (섬세빛- literally means "Three Lights Island"), this place looks amazing at night when the buildings floating by the river are lit against the dark skies. Some k-dramas have been shot here. It's quite a long walk from the subway, though....More

These awesome islands are famous for the 'Avengers: Age of ultron'. We were just riding the bicycle then suddenly encountered these beautiful islands. The light is so spectacular and there are several places for chillimg. My girlfriend also loved it.

It was nice to have a dinner and enjoy Han river. But I think the place doesn't have its own colour. Another typical Korean dining and shopping areas... I think Seoul city official needs to be more strategic to plan this place.

Having seen the movie "Avengers: Age of Ultron", I found the architecture of these artificial islands (or islets) in the Han River in Seoul, which were featured in the film, to be striking and futuristic, so I was determined to see them for myself when...More
