Bangokji Pond [반곡지 or 반곡지주차장], formerly also known as Oeobingj [외반지], is a pond and reservoir surrounded by peach fields located in the quiet rural village of Bangok-ri [반곡리] in Gyeongsan’s [경산시] Namsan Township [Namsan-myeon/남산면] around 3hrs south of Seoul and 2 hrs north of Busan by public transportation. It is one of many reservoirs in Gyeongsan City and is the most known of them.
The pond became known through the dramas and movies filmed here and was also selected as one of 25 photo-friendly attractions (사진 찍기 좋은 명소) by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in 2011. The latter project was established in 2011 and local governments can submit places which, once selected, are provided with facilities such as observation spaces, shelters, and information boards.
