Saturday Summary #30

by Marion KDL

So we passed the 1000th listing mark!

Many, many people helped to make our K-Dramaland map (and KDL in general) grow and be it what it is today.

Submitting locations, suggesting ideas like the ‘Search For Movies section’ or adding MVs and variety shows, relentlessly walking through Seoul and other parts of South Korea and the world to take photos and share them with everyone here, sharing experiences and tips and simply spreading the word. Soon we will even have previews of locations for upcoming shows.

It’s amazing to see this project evolve and get more and more people involved and I can’t thank everyone enough who took part in this journey so far. ‘대단히 감사합니다’, many thanks to all of you. A special heartfelt thanks, of course, goes to Mich KDL. Without her, KDL would be half of what it is.

Next stop — because we don’t stop: 2000.
I am more than excited about what will happen on the way there together with all of you!


Another new addition to KDL this past month is our first guest post. The writers behind GiveMeSlippers shared their passionate in-depth analysis of some of the My Mister locations. Stay tuned to part 2 coming up soon!

Would you like to guest-post too?

Goblin (2016-17, episode 10)

Mich KDL stumbled over this location and it got us stoked. It’s nearly unparalleled in KDL’s universe and only Incheon Airport (and probably one or two bridges that cross the Han River) can hold their ground against it.

This is also the reason why we have chosen it as our 1000th listing:
Chungah Park Columbarium [청아공원기독교전용관]

Investigation Couple (2018, episode 25)

Seogang Ggobdaegi [서강껍데기] was another find by Mich KDL. Last spotted in Investigation Couple, it also appeared in (at least) Something In The Rain; My Mister; Rich Family’s Son; Misty; Two Cops; Go Back Couple; Queen of Mystery and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.
