Namiseom is a tiny half-moon shaped island located in Chuncheon, South Korea, formed as it was inundated by the rising water of the North Han River as the result of the construction of Cheongpyeong Dam in 1944. Its name originated from General Nami who died at the age of 28 after being falsely accused of treason during the reign of King Sejo, the seventh king of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea. Although his grave wasn't discovered, there were a pile of stones where his body was supposed to be buried. It was believed that if someone took even one stone from there, it would bring misfortune to their house. A tour company arranged the grave with soil and then developed Namiseom into an amusement park.

This island has a wide grassplot, chest-nut trees, birches, ginko trees, and maples, etc. Besides, equipped with the facilities for recreation and accommodation, a zoo, a botanical garden and pleasure boats, it is well qualified as a all-round recreation center. People love this island as a rest place to provide young people with romance, lovers with reminiscences, families and workers with affection. In particular, well-known through a TV drama, 'Winter love song' in 2002, it is a noted place to not only the natives but Southeast nations like Hongkong.
