Rebranded Some Sevit by the Hyosung Group, which now operate them, the artificial islands that have stood—or floated, in this case—conspicuously empty almost continuously since they were completed in 2011 have been transformed into Seoul’s newest culture and leisure destination, a waterborne palace of art, entertainment and fine dining. Appearances in the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the US reality program “America’s Next Top Model” have also drawn considerable public attention on the landmark. And with the renovation scheduled for completion in September, the fun has only just begun.
– From article written by “Robert Koehler” Editor of Seoul Selection and the most influential media person among expats in Korea.
The Some Sevit (세빛섬), Islands Sevit, or Floating Islands are artificial islands in the Han River, Seoul, South Korea.It was built in 2006 but was rebranded in 2011. It has 3 islands: Some Gavit, Chavit, and Solvit. I went there to Banpo Hangang park to photograph, with a fear in mind that the Island can be dark , but fortunately the Islands were lighted up and I manage to get some nice shots as well. In fact I liked some of the shots soo much that I have decided to share with the world. Many thanks to Korea Tourism Organization who shared two of my photos;
Enjoy the pictures and if you have time before its gets really cold visit this amazing full of life place.
