In episode 16 of Strongest Deliveryman (최강 배달꾼) (KBS2, 2017), Choi Gang-soo (Go Kyung-pyo) returned to his hometown to seek solace after facing a major setback that threatened his company’s livelihood. Lee Dan-ah (Chae Soo-bin) comes to convince him to return to Seoul, and his mother (Lee Hang-na) also attempts to pay him a clandestine visit upon hearing his situation.
While Gang-soo’s hometown is shown as ‘Okgu-eup’ (in Jeollabuk-do), this was actually filmed in Geojin in Gangwon-do. Another film site in this area is Geojin Beach (거진해변). The road that leads up to Gang-soo’s father’s house is Geotanjin-ro 209beon-gil (거탄진로209번길).
Address: 5-4 Geotanjin-ro 209beon-gil, Geojin-eup, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do, South Korea

Getting here: In Seoul, take the subway to Gangbyeon station (강변역) (Line 2), leave from exit 3 and walk to the Dong Seoul Bus Terminal (동서울종합터미널). Take the bus bound for the Geojin Bus Terminal (거진종합버스터미널), a journey which would approximately take 2 hr 40 mins.
Once at the bus terminal, walk about 200m to the Geojin Market entrance bus stop (거진시장입구 정류장). Take the 1-1 bus to the Geojin Lighthouse entrance bus stop (거진등대입구 정류장), and you’ll see the winding path up to the residences once you reach. If you’re not sure, watch out for these 2 signs near the bus stop: 거진횟집 and 염광활어횟집, which are both raw fish restaurants.
