I often stumble over websites that list the 10 most important K-Drama filming locations or 10 must-see locations for K-Drama lovers.

Now, I thought, it is time to propose our own KDL ‘10 Locations Every True K-Drama Lover Should Recognize in a Split-Second‘.

Ready? To test your K-Drama sites knowledge? Let us know how you scored from one out of 10! ๐Ÿ™‚

OUR HIGHLIGHTS

The most exciting KDL moments of the past weeks were for me to find photos of filming locations in my inbox or submitted to KDL.

Out of nowhere.

Many thanks for ‘KDL photo reporters’ Thom Musni and Florence in making my day so often and certainly the day of a lot of other K-Drama lovers.

KISS, KISS, KISS

As weeks sometimes pass by with barely a kiss, these past weeks were quite decent.

Why Secretary Kim (2018, episode 8)

… and it finally worked — by the ghost defying initiative of Mi-so at National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul [๊ตญ๋ฆฝํ˜„๋Œ€๋ฏธ์ˆ ๊ด€ ์„œ์šธ๊ด€].

Are You Human? (2018, episode 11)

… and a marriage defying robot kiss at Korea House [ํ•œ๊ตญ์˜์ง‘ ๋ฏผ์†๊ทน์žฅ].

OUR FAVORITE STAPLES

Why Secretary Kim (2018, teaser trailer)
About Time (2018, 5th trailer)
Boys over Flowers (2009, episode 4)

This is definitely one of the major K-Dramaland staples for almost the past ten years.

Let me present to you this staple, finally also listed on KDL: Formerly Gyeonggi English Village, it now carries the name ChangeUp Campus (CUC) but it still runs the two camps — one in Paju and one in Yangpyeong . Also, when planning a trip, remember that the Paju Camp neighbors Heyri Art Village [ํ—ค์ด๋ฆฌ์˜ˆ์ˆ ๋งˆ์„] ;).

SPOTLIGHT ON A AREA

There is no discussion between Mich KDL and me. Gyedong (๊ณ„๋™) is definitely, without doubt, our favorite neighborhood in Seoul. Mich shared with us her afternoon visit and I directly wanted to pack my luggage… How about you?
