The Great King Sejong (2008, episode 86)

by Marion KDL

Here we are with another bi-weekly report on all the new filming locations.
A common thread is certainly the instagram worthy quality of a lot of these locations.
So I’ll keep it short today to let you discover them.
But not without a heartfelt thank you to everyone participating.


Black Knight (2017-18, episode 13)

I simply like the building of So-hoo’s enterprise in Black Knight aka Café Margot [마고까페] and, of course, it’s in Bukchon.

I’m Not A Robot (2017-18, episode 21)

Looking for an Instagrammy place? Try Arriate Tea House [아리아떼].
Ri-el from I’m Not A Robot loves the apple tea here; probably the safest bet according to ruffeecola’s review.


I’m Not A Robot (2017-18, episode 27)

The reunion and finally the kiss between Ji-ah and Min-kyu underneath the Mt. Seongheungsan Love Tree [성흥산 사랑나무].
That tree? What a beautiful creature of nature!


Hwayuki (2017-18, episode 6)

This is no doubt the most omnipresent landmark in K-Dramaland – latest seen in Hwayuki. Ever tried to find a contemporary drama where it doesn’t show up? Not even once in the background? This is a quizz for die-hard K-Drama lovers. 😉
