Speaking of Jeju Island, I believe many Chinese travelers are not unfamiliar, because the popular Korean dramas “Palace”, “My name is Jin Sanshun” and “Secret Garden” are all filmed here. Even if there is not much interest in “Hollywood stars”, the visa-free policy of Jeju Island and the cheap air tickets thrown by airlines from time to time also make this island full of temptation.
