Take a Gaetbae Boat into Abai Village

Try North Korean Dish at the Filming Site of “Autumn In My Heart”

If you are looking for a place where Sokcho’s culture is well preserved, take a Gaetbae Boat into Cheonghodong. This Gaetbae Boat, which moves only when people onboard attach a hook and pull the metal wire laid in the bottom of the water, is the fastest way to connect downtown Sokcho and Abai Village in Cheongho-dong. The murals painted in alleys embody the joys and sorrows of North Korean refugees of the Korean War who had settled down in Sokcho. This village became an international tourist attraction as the filming site of a TV series called “Autumn In My Heart” after the drama became a huge hit. This village is particularly known for traditional North Korean dishes passed down from the refugees, including Abai Sundae (North Korean-style sausage), stuffed pollack, Hamheung-style cold buckwheat noodles, and Hamheung-style short rib soup.
