Uruk is the fictional war-torn island in which hit Korean drama Descendants of the Sun was filmed. The island is always sunny, making it the perfect place for soldiers to run around topless during their morning physical training sessions.
One of the most memorable Uruk Descendants of the Sun scenes was when Si-jin and Mo-yeon spent the day on a deserted island. Si-jin then goes on to tell Mo-yeon that if you keep a rock from the island, you’ll be destined to return.
Make you own romantic memories by heading to this same magical island for your next holiday.
