Yangjaecheon [양재천] or Yangjae Stream is a local river flowing through Seoul just until it runs into the Tancheon, before joining the Han River. The 15.6km long river flows through three of Seoul’s districts: Gwacheon, Seocho, and Gangnam. A folk tale narrates that there were once 10 dragons that made up the Guryong Mountain with its valleys. When ascending to the sky, one of the dragons was surprised to see a pregnant woman, and it died in the Yangjae River or in its death, it turned into this river. The river brought prosperity to the people living close to it and this is how the river was named Yangjae, as its Chinese characters (良才驛) translates to ‘a group of talented people.’

This river is also a popular destination for its cherry blossoms [양재천 벚꽃길].

In 2012, this site was selected as one of 100 regular filming locations for movies and dramas by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul Film Council, and featured in the brochure The Places In Seoul Cinema Fell in Love With (영화가 사랑한 서울 촬영지 100선).
