Itaewon Class (2020, episode 2)

by Marion & Mich KDL

A new year brings new beginnings; that’s certainly the case for us here at KDL. If you’ve been wondering why we’ve been a rather quiet as of late, well — that’s simply because our real lives has overtaken our reel lives, ever so slightly. This is also the reason we had to take a week off earlier last month. Once again, thank you for understanding!

That being said, we will still do our best to keep up with the latest filming locations — and we already have some currently airing and upcoming dramas that have caught our eye πŸ˜‰ (Seo Kang-joon, anyone? — Mich)Β Β 

OUR HIGHLIGHTS

Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life (2019-20, episode 13)

We’re pleased to have tracked down this park, which we’d been trying to find even as early as last year. Thanks to the location team of Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life for bringing it into the light (no pun intended)!

Love With Flaws (2019-20, episode 5)

I (Mich) am personally quite happy to see this location FINALLY up on our screens. It may have been featured in at least one or two music videos, but considering how Instagrammable a place it is, it should have been a filming site from years ago! Well, better now than never, as I like to say.

I also made another visit to South Korea last month (Go Kyung-pyo is out of the army! HURRAH!) and managed to find time to visit some filming locations in between. The other highlight of this trip was most certainly Samcheok, and being able to finally see the beauty of the East Sea for myself.

OUR FAVORITE STAPLES

Psychopath Diary (2019-20, episode 12)

It’s been a while since we’ve seen this prison (set) in a drama…

Touch (2020, episode 4)

…and one of our favorite public squares is back on our screens too!

KISS, KISS, KISS

Chocolate (2019-20, episode 14)Chocolate (2019-20, episode 14)

Featuring a sweet one on Daecheon Beach [λŒ€μ²œν•΄μˆ˜μš•μž₯].

SPOTLIGHT ON AN AREA: MANGWON

Photo taken by Β© Mich KDL, January 2020

In comparison to its hipster relations of Hongdae, Hapjeong and Sangsu, the neighborhood of Mangwon wouldn’t normally come to mind as a ‘cool’ place to be. But on my recent visit there (and it being my first), I (Mich) actually found it rather fascinating.

Aside from tracking down some locations from past dramas (anyone still remembers Dae Jang Geum Is Watching?), I also got to discover the duality of Mangwon: its colorful, bustling market stalls and the season shopowners who run them, and the cool, minimalist exteriors of cafes and stationery shops. It’s quite a sensory experience and certainly makes for an interesting afternoon out. Be sure to make time to visit this neighborhood if you’re ever in that neck of the woods!
