“Pleasure Garden and Pavilion”
Review of Seodong Park

Seodong Park
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Gungnamji Pond located within Seodong park is the primary attraction here. This beautiful man-made pond features an artificial island in the center. Historical records do indicate that Gungnamji was constructed first during the Baekje Dynasty. The elegant wooden bridge and pavilion were constructed in modern times.

Therefore, while there is a measure of authenticity in the pond itself, what we see today is a fully-realized vision of what might of been. The pavilion, artificial island, lotus flowers, and bridge are all very beautiful. Gungnamji is well worth an hour of your time, especially if the season and weather are ideal. I enjoyed taking a rest from visiting historical sites and museums most of the day, Gungnamji gave me some time to relax and reflect.

Gungnamji Pond is a manmade pond and was the film site of many Korean dramas. It was created by King Mu of Baekje who fell in love with a Silla princess. There are also several sculptures and it is an easy walk from the bus station. There are many flowers during the summer and it is especially beautiful then.
