Choi Ji Woo reveals she hasn’t been to Nami Island for 22 years since ‘Winter Sonata’

Actress Choi Ji Woo shared that she hasn’t visited Nami Island since starring in ‘Winter Sonata‘.

On the June 23rd episode of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Super Junior Returns‘, titled ‘Love Falls Again Today‘, viewers got a peek into the daily life of Jason and his son Jun Beom.

During the episode, Jason planned a special family trip to Nami Island to celebrate his mother’s birthday.
