Ichon Hangang Park [이촌 한강공원] is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Seobinggo [Seobinggo-dong/서빙고동], in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구]; close to Banpo Bridge [반포대교]. Habaek’s castle in Bride of the Water God is situated at the very far east end of this park at the North end section of Banpo Bridge [반포대교]. It seems that officially this part is not even counted as part of the park; neither does it carry another name. Banpo Hangang Park [반포한강공원] is located just vis-à-vis on the other side of the Hangang River.
