  1. How to go to yongin university

    HI, COULD YOU KINDLY SEND THE DETAILS ON HOW TO GO TO YONGIN UNIVERSITY. ALSO, IS THE SCHOOL OPEN FOR TOURISTS EVERYDAY?

    1. Hi Anju, As I don’t know from where you’ll be traveling, I think it’s easiest if you click on “get directions” underneath the map and plan your travel yourself (it leads you to google maps >directions). In general, it seems you would need to go by bus. There is also a Yongin University Bus as it seems that has several stops in Seoul but I don’t know if it is reserved for students of the university only or if visitors can take them, too. So it might be best to contact the university directly.
      It’s an university so normally access should be possible every day. But also make sure here in advance. It’s a roughly 2hrs travel from Seoul and it’s better to to stand in front of open doors ;).

  2. Hi! Do you know which place did Joo Hyuk trained in a stairs on episode 1? 🙂

    1. Hi Hannah! Yes, it’s at Korea National Sport University. As far as I see it the stairs are the only place they filmed at there.
