House Ihwa Mural Village

Touch (2020); Are You Human? (2018); Three Colors of Fantasies III (2017); Introverted Boss (2017); Goblin (2016-17); Cinderella and Four Knights (2016)

The exterior of this house (from a different side than seen usually in K-Dramaland) appears as Han Soo-yeon’s (Kim Bo-ra) and her sister’s home in Jung Young-A (Yeon Woo, formerly of Momoland) Touch (터치/Teochi) (Channel A, 2020) — seen in episode 7, for instance.

Kang So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) and Nam Shin III (Seo Kang-joon) head up the stairs in front of this house during their bike ride in episode 18 of Are You Human?/Are You Human Too (너도 인간이니?) (KBS2, 2018) and they fight about who will carry the bikes up the stairs.

Park Se-geon (Ahn Hyo-seop) finds Nan-hee (Kim Seul-gi) in front of this house — dressed as a soju bottle — and she comforts him about his mother who won’t come to watch his fashion show in episode 6 of Queen of the Ring (반지의 여왕), the third story of the mini-series/drama trilogy Three Colors of Fantasies (세가지 색 판타지)(MBC/Naver 2017).

This place appears as ‘New York Barbershop’ in Introverted Boss/My Shy Boss/Sensitive Boss (내성적인 보스) (tvN, 2017). This is where Chae Ro-Woon (Park Hye-soo) and her family live.

It is just in front of this place, too, where Ji Eun-Tak (Kim Go-eun) talks with ghosts and is observed by Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) in episode 2 of Goblin (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神-도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17).

Also seen in Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사) (tvN, 2016).

  1. Cinderella and the four nights

    I just recently noticed that this place popped up in more than one drama, so I decided to look it up! It also appears in Cinderella and the Four Nights (2016). I can’t wait to visit the next time I’m in Korea!

    1. Thank you, Megan, for letting us know! It is now added and happy visiting and hopefully we all can be traveling normally again soon.
