Kim Hyeongtae’s House in Gahoe-dong [김형태가옥]

Because This Is My First Life (2017)

This house appears as the guest house that Yoon Ji-Ho (Jung So-Min) stays in in the final episode 16 of Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017) after she has left Nam Se-Hee’s (Lee Min-Ki) apartment.
 
Kim Hyeongtae’s House in Gahoe-dong [김형태가옥] is located in Gahoe-dong (and not Insa-dong as Because This Is My First Life makes believe) that makes up Bukchon Hanok Village [북촌한옥마을]. It is designated Seoul Folk Cultural Property No. 30 since 1999. It was build in 1938 on land that belonged to Yi Dalyong, a member of the Joseon royal family, during Joseon times. It is considered as one of the rare cases of traditional houses that is made out of ‘new materials’ such as red bricks, glass and metal and thus seen as exemplifying the changes of traditional housing in South Korea.
Nowadays, it houses two photo studios.
