Sogeumsan Suspension Bridge [소금산출렁다리]

Inspector Koo (2021); It's Okay to Not Be Okay (2020)

While crossing this bridge (rather shakily) in episode 10/11 of Inspector Koo/Koo Kyung-yi (Gu Gyeong-i/구경이) (JTBC/Netflix, 2021), Heo Seong-tae (Choi Dae-chul) trips and falls face first onto the bridge. He hears a voice and when he looks up, he sees K/Song Yi-kyung (Kim Hye-jun).

Moon Kang-tae (Kim Soo-hyun) takes Ko Moon-young (Seo Yea-ji) to this suspension bridge in episode 9 of It’s Okay to Not Be Okay (사이코지만 괜찮아) (tvN, 2020) and Moon-young is scared to cross the bridge — as seen in the preview of episode 8.

Opened on January 11 2018, Sogeumsan Suspension Bridge [소금산출렁다리] —sometimes also known as ‘Ganhyeon Rocking Bridge’ or ‘Wonju Rocking Bridge’— is “the longest and largest pedestrian bridge” in South Korea with a length of 200 meters, and 100 meters above ground. For visitors who prefer to rest on stable ground, the Salt Mountain Sky Walk [소금산스카이워크] just next to the southern entry point of this bridge also offers a splendid view over the surrounding landscape.

This bridge is located in the village of Ganhyeon [Ganhyeon-ri/간현리] in Wonju’s Jijeong Township [Jijeong-myeon/지정면].

In 2021, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism — announced through the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) — selected this bridge as one of the ‘100 Must-Visit Spots in Korea’ for 2021-2022.
