Saturday Summary #34

Encounter (2018-19, episode 1)

by Marion KDL and Mich KDL

Hello to 2019! ย โ™ฅ We hope you’ve had a great start to the new year. You may have noticed that there weren’t as many location listings towards the end of 2018 – that’s because I (Mich) was on a 2-week vacation, and Marion was busy wrapping up the year! We are back now and ready to get back into the KDL groove, and we hope you are too ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to seeing the new dramas that will grace our screens this year! Which ones are you most anticipating?

We also hope you enjoyed our 2018 Roundups! As a recap, here they are again:

#1 Most Seen Locations | #2 Neighborhoods of the Year | #3 Beyond Korea and Over the Seas |
#4 Fave Scenes and Sitesย (thanks to Chelle, Florence and Iris27 for contributing theirs!)


Twelve Nights (2018, episode 10)

I love to discover familiar real life places in K-Dramaland and this dry cleaners is one. What a surprise to see this tiny business be featured in Twelve Nights (2018). — Marion KDL

My Strange Hero (2018-19, episode 1)

And as much as I do love this, I also love to discover familiar K-Dramaland places again. Hello there Bok Chicken! It’s been a while! — Marion KDL

Encounter (2018-19, episode 2)

As for me, I was most excited to know that we’ve found the location for Chan’s Whelk! I was asked by a fellow fan if this was a real location, and my reply was that it could be part a studio set. Glad to know that it’s an actual place though! It turns out that the building next door was also featured in another drama, Valid Love. — Mich KDL


Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter (2018, episode 11)

A recorded first kiss at Some Sevit/Sebitseom [์„ธ๋น›์„ฌ]ย – wonder what tall ‘tail’ would be spun from this (supposedly) sweet moment.ย — Mich KDL


My Strange Hero (2018-19, episode 4)

I somehow have a soft spot for this cafรฉ; a regular in K-Dramaland: Gallery Cafe Adamas253 [์•„๋‹ค๋งˆ์Šค253] — Marion KDL

Coffee Prince (2007, episode 2)

And how could we (I) start a new year, without a bridge? I am happy that we have two more 2000s K-Drama additions to one of my favourite bridges: Coffee Prince and Star’s Lover.ย — Marion KDL


Continuing on with the theme of overseas locationsย from last month — for those of you who may be curious about where I went to on vacation, here’s a little peek:

Yes — it’s New York (New York), the ‘concrete jungle where dreams are made of’, and where Twelve Nights was filmed at last year! Indeed, ‘the city that never sleeps’ was filled with interesting experiences and sights to behold; but don’t be too starry-eyed by how it’s portrayed in the media! If you plan to visit, go with no expectations, and you’d probably enjoy yourself more that way ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  –Mich KDL



My Strange Hero (2018-19, episode 1)
