Falling back into the familiarity of Mystery Queen (what an incredible smooth transition from the past year’s Season 1!) and discovering exalting The Great Seducer with fancy filming locations, these were definitely two nice weeks in K-Dramaland.

I hope it was the same for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

OUR HIGHLIGHTS

That Man Oh Soo (2018, episode 2)

I Need Romance 3 (2014)

These two hanoks (or hanok inspired buildings) were definitely one of the highlights these past two weeks: Oh-soo’s house and Shin Joo Yeonโ€™s House.

KISS, KISS, KISS

Eulachacha Waikiki (2018, episode 9)

A male deer in headlights! Joon-Ki’s gender-reversal at Izakaya [๋ฏธ๋‚˜๋ฏธ].

OUR FAVORITE STAPLES

My Husband Oh Jak-doo (2018, episode 3)

I still don’t understand why this cafรฉ is never featured in the top 10 K-Drama filming sites to visit. My Husband Oh Jak doo showcased it in a totally new light and made us discover its exterior (!).

My Golden Life (2017-18, episode 50)

Pino Bistro Italiano [ํ”ผ๋…ธ ์ดํƒˆ๋ฆฌ์•ˆ ๋ ˆ์Šคํ† ๋ž‘] is a constant in K-Dramaland and stays one — as seen in My Golden Life recently.

SPOTLIGHT ON A NEIGHBORHOOD

The Best Hit (2017, episode 16)

Eulachacha Waikiki (2018, episode 9)

Sangam-dong’s [์ƒ์•”๋™] shiny north-side also has a more cozy side to it. Instead of skyscrapers and fancy (entertainment) business buildings, restaurant Izakaya [๋ฏธ๋‚˜๋ฏธ] appeared several times during the past two weeks and also Gaon Culture Park [๊ฐ€์˜จ๋ฌธํ™”๊ณต์›] with a sweet encounter.

The Universe’s Star (2017, episode 1)

Thanks to Chelle, I also learned about MBC Garden Studio [MBC ๊ฐ€๋“  ์ŠคํŠœ๋””์˜ค] where you can watch radio shows being broadcast live. Definitely a place to go on a trip to Seoul if listening to radio has grown on you since Radio Romance.
