Suncheon Open Film Set [순천드라마촬영장]
A building on this set appears as the ‘Soonyang Theater’ in Gwangju run by Oh Jung-shin’s (Seol In-ah) father and later by her (after her father’s death) in episodes 1-2 of Oasis (Oasiseu/오아시스) (KBS2, 2023) [Spoiler] until Jung-shin is forced to sell it to her aunt at the end of episode 2.
Scenes from Kim Hye-ja’s (Kim Hye-ja/Han Ji-min) past in The Light in Your Eyes/Eyes Are Dazzling (눈이 부시게) (JTBC, 2019) were filmed here, which also featured Lee Hyun-joo (Kim Ga-eun) and Yoon Sang-eun (Song Sang-eun).
A younger Kim Yoon-hee (Im Yoon-a) lives here in the 1970s in Love Rain (사랑비) (KBS2, 2012). We see her house in episode 4, for instance, when Seo In-ha (Jang Geun-seok) apologises for having read her diary; while she, listening from inside, is coughing blood because of her tuberculosis.

Can you tell me if it is still open for the public? I’m planning to visiting the area in October
hello Ana! thanks for checking in. from what we know, the film set is open daily to the public between 9am-6pm; tickets for the day are sold till 5pm. however, we’re not sure when the set would be closed to the public (e.g. if any filming takes place). this is the official Suncheon website for it, though all in Korean. hope this helps, and feel free to let us know if you have any other questions!
Is this open for public?
hello Mariz! thanks for checking. yes – this place is certainly open to the public! we’ve updated the listing with some extra information. do note that an admission fee of 3,000 won applies to each adult! hope this helps and enjoy your trip, if you’re planning to go there 🙂
