Soak in the peaceful fishing village atmosphere of Abai Village, known for its seafood restaurants and picturesque scenes. During the Korean War, many elderly refugees of North Korea fled here, resulting in its name Abai, meaning "aged person." The village was the backdrop to the extremely popular KBS drama "Autumn in My Heart"; today, you can ride the raft that the main character would regularly use in the show to cross the harbor. The main draw--and the village's livelihood--remains the abundant seafood. Try the popular local delicacy, the Abai sundae: a squid stuffed with clear noodles, tofu, and vegetables. Plan my day in Sokcho using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Abai Village Reviews
가을동화 촬영지였던 곳으로 갯배타고 들어가면 바로 마을인데 아바이순대 파는 식당이 몇개 있고 마을 지나면 바다 보이고... 크게 볼거리는 없습니다. 기대하시면 실망하실 수도 있어요. more »This is a place where you can see the sea after a few restaurants and the town of Deabai... There is no major attraction. Expect to be disappointed.
마을이라는 명칭이 너무 잘어울리는 곳입니다. 너무 허름하지는 않지만 느낌있어요. 이곳에서 아바이순대는 꼭 드셔보세요 more »The name of the village is so well suited. I feel like I'm not too thin. This is a must-see for the Abai Sundae
