Radio Romance (2018, episode 12)

by Marion KDL

Two weeks already?! I’m still amazed about how many beautiful places there are to discover each day in K-Dramaland.

It seems that rather than the ‘real deal’ we had a lot more of come-close-to-a kiss teaser situations these past two weeks.

We had this at Take A Step [테이크어스텝],

The Great Seducer (2018, episode 12)

this at Dalssi Market [달씨마켓]

That Man Oh Soo (2018, episode 5)

and this at House of Open Books.

Radio Romance (2018, episode 16)

Can I call this bus stop a staple because it reappears on my screen all the time recently?

The King Loves (2017, episode 40)

Also, this Mt. Seongheungsan Love Tree [성흥산 사랑나무] is always lovely to look at — and a real staple (and fond I’m Not a Robot memories)!

This is not a real neighborhood, but part of a neighborhood: Baekhyeondong Cafe Street [백현동카페거리].

Located in the city of Seongnam [성남시] — which itself is the new K-Dramaland capital, tt is around 1hr by public transport from Seoul Station.

This area of tiny, parallel streets filled with cafés like I’m Home Cafe [아임홈 백현점], Lazy Mint Café [레이지민트] and Vegebox [베지박스 백현카페거리점], restaurants like Cuisson [뀌숑] and Take A Step [테이크어스텝], boutiques like Bonispax [보니스팍스 백현동점], bakeries like La Chinata [라치나타] and a lot of greenery, recently is a favorite place of K-Dramaland people to live in and to visit.

Shi-Hyun and Tae-hee live here and Tae-hee works part-time at the bakery La Chinata [라치나타] and they seem to enjoy their neighborhood quite a lot in The Great Seducer/Tempted.

Also, Wan-seong and Seol-ok recently walked through here in Mystery Queen 2 (the moment after he has proposed and they both wanted to hold hands but nobody made the first move. Sigh.).
