Beaches in Incheon, Part II: Silmi-Keunmuri Beach, Incheon Jung-gu - Special Ops Unit 684, Revisited.

Theatrical Poster of Silmido: We're going to DIE.
Silmi Beach, also known as Keunmuri Beach, is located on Muui Island a.k.a Muui-dong, Incheon Jung-gu. The clean, sandy beach stretches out beautifully against the backdrop of a lush pine tree forest so dense that it does not let daylight in, even at midday. Facing the beach is Silmi Island a.k.a Silmido, the location for the filming of ‘Silmido’ (2003), a Korean movie based on the tragic story of South Korean special ops Unit 684. 

The film set, however, was demolished after the shooting. Silmi Beach of Muui Island is connected to Silmi Island by tidal flats exposed for two hours every day during low tide, so it is possible to walk from one island to another by crossing over the seafloor. The sea parting hours can be checked on the Korea Hydrographic and Oceanographic Administration website.
