Houses on Guam-gil [구암길] (Demolished)

No. 93-5 — Go Bok-shil (Nam Ji-hyun) lives here in Shopping King Louis/Shopping King Louie (쇼핑왕 루이) (MBC, 2016) and takes in Louis (Seo In-guk). This is also where Louis declares his love to her – not forgetting to hand her an orange rose.

No. 93-7 — Jung Hae-ra (Shin Se-kyung) lives here in episode 1 and 2 of Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me (흑기사) (KBS2, 2017-18) before she moves in with Moon Soo-ho (Kim Rae-won).

Pop group Asgard, which is trained by Yoon Jin-myung’s (Han Ye-ri) company, lives here. Jin-myung visits this place in episode 7 of Age of Youth 2 / Hello, My Twenties! 2 (청춘시대 2) (JTBC, 2017) to get the signed document of Heimdal’s (An Woo-yeon) contract termination.

This is the house where Ko Dong-man (Park Seo-joon) formerly lived. We see it in a flashback in episode 8 of Fight For My Way/Third-Rate My Way (쌈 마이웨이) (KBS2, 2017) and learn that Dong-man is Choi Ae-ra’s (Kim Ji-won) first love. ♡

Koo Jung-hee (Yoon Sang-hyun) works as a mover and we see him moving boxes into this house with his colleagues in episode 4 of Perfect Wife/Ms. Wife (완벽한 아내) (KBS2, 2017).

Also seen in episode 1 of Sisyphus: The Myth (시지프스: the myth) (JTBC, 2021).

No. 93-9 — Im Ba-reun (L of Infinite, Kim Myung-soo) apparently lives in one of the apartments in this house with his parents in Ms. Hammurabi/Miss Hammurabi (미스 함무라비) (JTBC, 2018).

Boncheon Hillstate [봉천 힐스테이트] — also referred to as Bongcheon-dong Hillstate [봉천동힐스테이트], Hyundai Hillstate [현대힐스테이트] or Hillstate Apartment [힐스테이트아파트] — is a 28-storey high apartment housing complex encompassing 9 buildings and 997 households (with a size between 38 and 84㎡), slated for move-in in October 2024.

This complex will be located in the District 4-1-2 [봉천4-1-2구역] of Seoul’s neighborhood Seonghyeon-dong [성현동] — administered by neighborhood Bongcheon [Bongcheon-dong/봉천동] — in the Gwanak District [Gwanak-gu/관악구]. District 4-1-2 was a densely populated area of old red brick villas with steep slopes and narrow roads nestled between Byeoksan Blooming [벽산블루밍과] and Gwanak Dream Town [관악드림타운]; both built in the early 2000s. In 2009, it was designated as a maintenance area and was approved for management disposition in 2019 before undergoing demolition in October 2021. Re-development is currently underway (as of December 2021) carried out by Hyundai Engineering & Construction [현대건설].

Among the demolished sites are the houses located at Guam-gil [구암길], which were home to several characters in K-Dramaland.

  1. I went there today and none of these houses exists anymore. Whole area has been demolished in order to build new apartment complexes.

    1. Hi Arz, What sad news! Thank you for letting everyone here know. It must have been strange to find this street all demolished. >.< We've adapted the listing now. So no bad surprises anymore for future visitors.

  2. Shopping king Louie too

    1. Hi Nina, Many thanks! In fact you are quite right. Shopping King Louis actually lived next door 🙂
