I’m still stoked about Mich KDL’s “The Ultimate Guide to Gangdong.” This is the definite guide for everyone out there that loves Strongest Deliveryman. The headquarters? Halmoni’s restaurant? Dan-Ah’s house? All the main places are in there with descriptions how to get from one to the other, coming along with lovely photos.
Here is a short filmed version of the itinerary, tried and tested by Mich KDL this November (you can read and comment the whole guide here).
It’s incredible how lovely all these places look dressed in autumn leaves!
My favorites and definitely the most Instagrammy ones are clearly the
Namsan Fortress Wall,
Haneul Park aka Sky Park,
Suncheon Open Film Set,
Kwang-ho & Yeon-Sook’s House in the 80s in Tunnel and
Keimyung University [계명대학교].
KISS, KISS, KISS
This here at Deungmyeong Beach [등명해변] was close enough in Manhole (2017) to mention it here, I guess.
OUR FAVORITE STAPLES
Since 2016 at least, Nanji Hangang Park [난지한강공원] regularly appears on our screen. The last time in Because This Is My First Life. In such it is rather a new filming location that is in the process of becoming a staple. Hopefully we see more girl-friendships growing here as well.
