Yeouido Hangang Park: Not as grand as other parks in Korea, Hangang offers perfect picnic spots, but opportunities for perfect solo shots — especially in the Fall Season!

Bonus: Hangang Park was also a setting for one of the scenes in the popular Korean Drama, “Legend of the Blue Sea”. See screen below.
