Naksan Temple
Kanghyeon-myeon, Yangyang-gun, Gangwon-do
(강원 양양군 강현면)

It's not the first time I've heard about the Naksan Temple but it's the first time I paid attention to how it actually looks like; and it's gorgeous! I fell in love with it the first time!

The beauty of the mountains collaborating with the vast ocean to create a splendid scenery that projects the immaculate beauty of the Korean culture is just too wonderful to not notice. The Naksan Temple perched on a peak is like a serene escape, a sanctuary to many.

It's not gonna be easy to get here especially if I don't have a car but hopefully, one day, I'll be able to visit this wonderful place. I hope this is a typical Korean drama filming location. It's just so romantic!

Delpino Resort
1153 Misiryeongyet-gil, Toseong-myeon, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do
(강원 고성군 토성면 미시령옛길 1153)

When Super Junior M went to Gangwon-do, this is the resort they stayed at.
It's awesome, definitely sophisticated and plush.
I'm guessing a lot of Korean dramas and variety shows had been filmed here in the past,
and as much as I want to go here, I don't think I can't. LOL
But I'll be happy to admire it from afar.

Deungmyeong Beach
Aninjin-ri, Gangdeungmyeon, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do
(강원 강릉시 강동면 안인진리 )

The boys went to Gangwon Province and had their meal by the beach.
However, the attraction there is when the train passes by as beside the benches is a rail track.
Cute? :)

Now, how did I get to identify this easily?
Because it was the same place where Kill Me Heal Me filmed that break-up scene.

소년상회
25 Wausanro-13gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 와우산로15길 25)

So this got my interest.
The cafe where Kyuhyun and Zhoumi went for an episode of Super Junior Guesthouse is actually a boy-themed cafe. It's quite small but the interesting part is that it caters the interests of a typical boy. Lots of animated characters' figurines are placed on the tables and cartoon characters are drawn on walls.

Very simple. Very cute.
Very manly. :)

Cafe Footloose
805 Seolleung-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
(서울 강남구 선릉로 805)

I'm on a roll. Hahaha.

Okay, I must admit it now. I can't watch the whole show. I can't even finish an episode so to compensate, I'll be depending on the still shots provided by the program's official site.

So Cafe Footloose is where Super Junior M filmed with Heo Gyeonghwan.
Yes to my favorites! :)
And the cafe is actually located near Apgujeong Rodeo Station.
To get there, you can get off the said station using Exit 5 and then head straight towards the direction you're facing (SOUTH) until you reach the cafe. You'll know you're near when you pass by the bus station.

Namsan Tower
105 Namsan Park-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
(서울 용산구 남산공원길 105)

I'm not following Super Junior Guesthouse that much due to my busy schedule but from time to time, I'll be posting a location. Please forgive me if it's not going to be in chronological order. What matters is that it's here, right? :)

So the first post for SJ Guesthouse is from Episode 10. The boys had to go to Namsan Tower one night to find something to complete a mission, perhaps. They even went to the roof terrace where the love locks are.

To those who don't know, the Namsan Tower is probably the most popular among the icons of Seoul. It is situated in the highest peak of the city and is a common filming location for many Korean dramas and variety shows.

To get there, you can either ride the bus or ride the cable car.
For directions, you can send me a message or drop me a comment. :)

The Korean drama Kill Me Heal Me has ended. It's yet to sink in on me but right now, I'm having separation anxieties because the whole ending thing was so abrupt yet it marked me so deep. I never knew I would get attached to the personalities, especially to Perry Park and Ahn Yona. The goodbye scenes were totally difficult to handle that I kept on bawling while watching the last two episodes.

Immediately after the ending, I have concluded that this really topped my list, taking over It's Okay, It's Love's position as my most favorite Korean drama. If you're a friend in my personal Facebook account, you might have seen my statuses saying I will definitely revolt if Ji Sung and Hwang Jungeum won't get awards for their acting. They're superb! I've got nothing negative to say towards Ji Sung! Boyoung's really lucky to have him!


I know I've posted a lot of Kill Me Heal Me filming locations before but as an ode to this wonderful production, let me do a batch posting of all the other locations I could find. This is most likely the last post in the drama so I'm hoping you guys can share it to others.



1. MINAMI 
8 World Cup-bok-ro 48-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 월드컵복로48길 8)

On Episode 8, Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) and Dohyun (Ji Sung) went to a Japanese restaurant to talk about his medical situation. This is one of the initial encounters between the two and it's amazing how they used this beautiful location as its setting. I feel like the cherry blossoms signified a slight connection to the emotion they're conveying... that they're in for a brand new beginning.

2. GREEN CLOUD CAFE
138 Wausan-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 와우산로 138)

I couldn't exactly remember why Oh Rion (Park Seojun) and Ahn Yona met but that was the prelude to the most hilarious scene, and it was actually filmed in Hongdae. The cafe where they were initially in is the Green Cloud Cafe, an interesting dining spot where you would need to go down three steps to get to the main dining area. It has this natural, environmental vibe - thanks to the presence of the tree on the corner. The light bulbs are exquisite too. ^^

3. HONGDAE
Wausan-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 와우산로)

One of the most memorable scenes in Kill Me Heal Me is when Ahn Yona escaped Oh Rion and ran on the streets of Hongdae. Yes, Hongdae. And that explains the amount of people taking pictures from the sidewalk as Ji Sung, Hwang Jungeum and Park Seojun were running like crazy. HAHA.

Seriously, more than its importance in the story, this particular part solidified the intense popularity of the Korean drama. Obviously, the production team could no longer control the people watching the filming so they just had to include everyone in the scene. It's just terrific.


4. HONGDAE 2
Jandari-ro 6-gil, Eoulmadang-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 어울마당로 잔다리로6길)

Once again, here's a scene I couldn't remember. But I know this happened. LOL.
This was before they went to the Taro card reader who predicted their fate.
It was shot in a small street in Mapo-gu called Jandari-ro 6-gil.



5. MANGO SIX
26 Samsung-ro 85-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
(서울 강남구 삼성로85길 26)

Oh Rijin had to pretend that she had to go abroad in order to be the secret psychiatrist of Cha Dohyun. However, the secret didn't last long because Oh Rion caught her during his book launch at a Mango Six branch. 

Now where was that cafe? In Daechi-dong.

The part when Oh Rion chased the car in which Dohyun and Rijin rode to escape was filmed at the back part of the branch.

If you think this one's familiar, then you must have watched The Heirs. This is the Mango Six cafe where Cha Eunsang (Park Shinhye) worked.


6. MANGO SIX
452 Gangnamdae-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
(서울 강남구 강남대로 452)

Because Mango Six is obviously a major sponsor, another branch was used in filming.
This time, it's the one in Gangnamdae-ro.

So I'm hoping I could find the house location soon because I won't feel complacent without knowing where it is. LOL. If you need help in finding your way to these places, feel free to drop me a comment! Or you can follow me at @ManagerHyung. I'm more accessible there!

Aqua Planet
282 Hallyu World-ro, Ilsan-seogu, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 고양시 일산서구 한류월드로 282)

The consultations between the doctor and Cha Do Hyun (Ji Sung) in the Korean drama Kill Me Heal Me often happens in secret. At first, they meet up in a garden where they were mistaken for a couple. LOL.

I don't know why but in the end, they moved to Aqua Planet in Ilsan.
It's a special place for me because as I said, I love the underwater scene despite my slight fear on ocean water. Hehehe.

Right now, Aqua Planet has three branches (if I'm not mistaken). Aside from this one in Ilsan, they also have it in Jeju Island and Jeonam. However, I think I love this one in Gyeonggi most. They have this huge aquarium which I think will definitely fascinate me. Plus, the underwater tunnel! There's also this illuminated aquariums filled with jelly fishes. A mini-zoo can also be found inside, which features other animals.

Cool?

These pictures would explain you better.

If this location looks familiar to you, you must have watched other Korean dramas like Hyde, Jekyll & I.

Dangung
875 Kwonyul-lo, Baekseog-eup, Yangju-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기도 양주시 백석읍, 권율로 875)

One of the most important parts of the Korean drama Kill Me Heal Me is when Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) finally recalled everything after she saw the door to the basement in the Chairman's house. When she broke down, Cha Dohyun (Ji Sung) was there and he ran to her immediately but wasn't able to touch her, because he too remembered the past and was blaming himself for the lady's sufferings then.

So that was filmed in Dangung, a gorgeous palace complex perched on a hillside in Gyeonggi. It offers a gorgeous view of the mountain and is a perfect site for those going on healing camps. If you ask me, it's like a mix of traditional and modern architecture, which makes it totally wonderful. The nature provides this serene atmosphere which will make you feel relaxed and invigorated.


Now, if you recall, the next scene featured Oh Rijin with her 'twin brother' Oh Rion (Park Seojun) in a cafe. Here, Rion knew that everything came back and the girl asked him not to follow her. 

The restaurant is actually within Dangung too. And it basically gives you the preview of why I said it's a mix of traditional and modern, right? :) And that is the very reason why I am putting this location in my to-visit list when I get to travel to Korea.

Apparently, this is the place where scenes in the Chairman's home were shot.

Aqua Planet
282 Hallyu World-ro, Ilsan-seogu, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 고양시 일산서구 한류월드로 282)

One of the most astounding attractions in Gyeonggi is the Aqua Planet.
Although there is a similar one in Coex in Seoul where I Hear Your Voice filmed, this one is far bigger and has more features in it.
In the Korean drama Hyde, Jekyll and I, this is where Han Jimin had to wear a mascot costume to get to talk to Hyun Bin.

I have a fear of water but I'm so fascinated with watching the marine life through aquariums.
I'm looking forward to visiting this place when I get to travel to Korea soon! :)

Times Square
15 Yeongjung-ro, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul
(서울 영등포구 영중로 15)

Because it had been a long time since I watched Hyde, Jekyll and I, this particular scene slipped off of my mind. I couldn't really remember what was happening in this scene but I guess the more important thing is that Han Jimin went here, and you could too!

It's the Times Square in Yeongdeungpo-gu. It's a huge shopping mall featuring designer and local brands. In the Korean drama, it is where the Wonderland Office is.
