Because This Is My First Life (2017, episode 11)

by Marion KDL

I feel like I am totally lagging behind adding filming locations. Well, it is not only a feeling. There are sooo many still in draft version. Is this a usual K-Drama end-of-the-year feeling/fact?! Or is this just the counterpoint of recognizing more and more locations that I’ve seen in past dramas?

Anyhow, there was a really nice addition of new locations and addings to already existing ones these past two weeks.

Many, many thanks to deanekitty29, Juliana, Mich, ruffeecola, and Q for making this happen.


Mich and I sat down for out first KDL End of the Year Review (more to come!).

For the first one, we took a look at all the locations that we’ve seen most on our screens throughout 2017.

Of course, there were some locations that came less as a surprise as Incheon Airport or Wonhyo Bridge but others like Asosan were a clear eye opener.

Because This Is My First Life (2017, episode 9)

YOLO café!!

This is an event space in RL and I’m really happy that Mich has found this place. ♡ Definitely on my must-visit list!

Soon coming up [spoiler] is the rooftop apartment. Right now it sits on the top shelf of next locations to add. 😉


I couldn’t get that much behind this couple (I know!). But their date at Samcheok Beach [삼척해수욕장] was cute as well as that kiss.

… and a more passionate one in Meloholic at Yolgok-ro 3-gil [율곡로3길].


Black Knight (2017-18, episode 2)

I first really noticed Yakhyeon Cathedral [중림동약현성당] in The K2. Last seen in Black Knight, it is a classic filming location since at least 2009 with IRIS.
