  1. Hotel del Luna???

    Hi, LR here

    Not really sure but I have an inkling “Hotel del Luna” might have used this location in some of Man-wol’s flashback scenes.

    My only sure evidence is that the location of the scene where Man-wol’s band is being executed is the same as in the “Daechwita” MV as well as the drama “Flower in Prison”.

    1. Hi LR, Many thanks for this. Let’s see if someone can verify it!

  2. Stray Kids

    Lr here

    …so apparently Stray Kids’ “Double Knot (English Ver.)” Performance Video was also shot here…

  3. Mystic Pop-up Bar & AGUST D

    Hi this is Lr

    1. the Joseon flashback of “Mystic Pop-Up Bar” (쌍갑포차) episode 1 were filmed here
    (cameos by Park Si-eun, Park Eun-hye, Seon Geon-hee, & Kim Hee-jung)

    2. Agust D (Suga of BTS)’s new MV “Daechwita” (大吹打) was filmed here + cameos from Jin & Jungkook

  4. The King: Eternal Monarch

    Hi this is Lr

    Some scenes from episode 1 of “The King: Eternal Monarch” are shot here, to represent the main palace (located at Busan) of the Kingdom of Corea.

    In particular:
    -the eunuch commencing the mourning ceremony rites from the palace rooftop (shouting “sang’wibok” and flapping the deceased monarch’s upper garment 3 times)
    -Yi Gon’s coronation ceremony
    -Yi Gon’s public mourning for his deceased father (cameo by Kwon Yul, who interestingly shot in this location during “Haechi”)
