Hansin Building
12 Mapo-daero, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 마포대로 12)

I'M SCREAMING OMGGGGGGGGG
IT'S WHERE THE GRAFFITI DRAWN BY THE SUICIDAL PERSONALITY, AHN YOSEOB, CAN BE FOUNDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!
Since I watched the episode, I've been constantly asking myself: 
Where's that Kill Me Heal Me rooftop?



And that's why I'm so glad that I stumbled upon this blog saying it's in Mapo but there's no address so I had to go through the streets through maps to find the actual location.
The only clue I've got were the pictures I got through screen caps and the pictures in the blog.
But thank God for aerial views!!!!!!!!

So basically, the rooftop scenes were a hit.
Believe me, it was what convinced me that Kill Me, Heal Me is the next big thing in Korean dramas. It is in this scenes that I was convinced that Hwang Jungeum and Ji Sung are definitely A-listers when it comes to acting and their skills really got me on my knees.

Now, what is the place? It's the HANSIN BUILDING.
It's near the Mapo Bridge and is quite a skyscraper, if you ask me.
All the clues point out to this one place: the laundry shop, the view of the bridge, even the writing on the building nearby.
And if I'm not mistaken, the scenes were shot on the extended rooftop.
I mean, there's a rooftop, but there's another smaller floor attached to it so it has its rooftop too,
so basically you get my point? LOL
To those who don't, here's the picture:

Prior to this, I've been reading some comments about this Korean drama filming location
They say the graffiti's still there and they're hoping it'll be turned into a tourist attraction considering that Kill Me Heal Me's doing good in the rating charts.
Of course, I don't have any means to prove that it's still there unless the maps will be updated with a recent and clearer version.
But honestly, I'm hoping they really preserve the drawings and the Kill Me, Heal Me words.
I mean, it's a good reminder for everyone that suicide is never the answer to problems.

Also, please don't ask me if the public's permitted to go up there.
I DON'T KNOW.
But one thing's certain, I'll try to visit the place when I finally travel to Seoul.



HOW TO GET TO HANSIN BUILDING?


1. Find your way to Mapo Station (Purple Line) and get off via Exit 4. Head towards the direction you're facing (that's going South, headed to Mapo bridge)


2. Be mindful of the BBS Building, a radio station's headquarters. It's in the corner of a block and you've got to turn left after it. There's a police station at the end of the street.


3. When you reach the police station, turn right.


4. Hansin Building is the building in the far end corner.
The laundry shop is in front of it. :)


Once again, I don't assure 100% accuracy but I'm pretty confident with this.
It's a personal pick among all filming locations I've ID-ed.
Hopefully, I'm right on this one.
And hopefully, we really can go up that rooftop. ^^

So everyone had watched Kill Me Heal Me's Episode 16?
Cha Dohyun (Ji Sung) and Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) went to a trip and if you ask me, it's a very romantic one. Except when it came to an end. Sigh.

It's a beautiful experience, right?
For most couples in Korea, this is how a date should be during autumn and winter seasons: a long train trip with their loved ones, going to a gorgeous province, visiting the beach. 

And that is what our Dohyun and Rijin couple did.
The destination: Gangwon Province. :)

Want to do the same?
Here's a guide:



THE "KILL ME, HEAL ME" DATING EXPERIENCE


1. KORAIL TRAIN
second photo from here
To do your date this Kill Me Heal Me-way, you have to ride the KORAIL train to Gangwon-do.
Actually, it's the same train Yongseo took to the same province to see the sunrise; only, our couple used the last coach which is practically more interesting although less comfortable. ^^

There, you can hang your love notes.
Like what we usually do with our love locks.

For more pictures of the train, you can visit this blog.
From Seoul, you can use the Cheongnyangri Station to access this train.



2. JEONGSEON AURAJI
Yeoryang-ri, Yeoryang-myeon, Jeongson-gun, Gangwon-do
(강원 정선군 여량면 여량리)

When I saw this scene, I told myself that there is no way I would not find this Korean drama filming location. It's just definitely gorgeous. That moon set in the bridge, with the glorious mountain scenery on the background is just one of the most enthralling places I've ever seen. It speaks to me, mandating me that even once in my life, I should visit this place called Jeongseon Auraji.

For more pictures, visit this blog.



3. RAIL BIKE
745 Nochusan-ro, Yeoryang-myeon, Jeongseon-gun, Gangwon-do
(강원 정선군 여량면 노추산로 745)

second photo from here
The main attraction of the date would be the rail bike.
From the starting point in Nochusan-ro, you're gonna ride a mini-cart and then paddle your way to the end of the track. You're gonna pass through tunnels, and pass by rivers, mountains and even fields.
This is in my bucket list. I'm gonna travel to Korea for this.
I'm gonna enjoy as much as Cha Dohyun and Oh Rijin in the Korean drama.

For more pictures, you can visit this blog.


3. NAJEON STATION
38 Bukpyeong-8gil, Bukpyeong-myeon, Jeongseon-gun, Gangwon-do
(강원 정선군 북평면 북평8길 38)

second photo from here
This is basically where you'll end up after the rail bike experience.
It's an old yet charming train station in Najeon.
It gives off that peaceful vibe, with all the trees and mountain views, right?

For more pictures, you can visit this blog.

4. DEUNGMYEONG BEACH
Aninjin-ri, Gangdeungmyeon, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do
(강원 강릉시 강동면 안인진리 )

A trip to Gangwon-do will never be complete without a stroll in the beach.
As I've said earlier, Koreans especially prefer the beach during winter season for dates.
They usually play around, chasing and getting chased by the waves.
It's a cute experience I want to do.
But I'm afraid I'm gonna have to do it alone and people will think I'm crazy. LOL

Now, this beach is quite far from Najeon Station but the distance's manageable.
I think you're gonna have to ride a bus? And then walk a little?
I'm not sure.
But one thing is sure, visiting is definitely worth it.


Of course, I won't be able to sleep without finding this restaurant.
Well, easy, because it's just in front of the beach. Hahaha.
You see the benches in the right side? Find the one where there's #29 written on its legs and that's exactly where Oh Rion (Park Seojun) and Oh Rijin sat after the break-up. ^^


This is basically the dating route of Cha Dohyun and Oh Rijin!
I know I'm not going to Korea with a boyfriend but I'll make sure that if fate approves, I'll visit these places even alone. ^^ 

Gangwon Province is really one of the most beautiful places in South Korea.
It's a tourist magnet, with all the beautiful nature sights.
Although I still love Gyeonggi (and its accessibility), this province is surely coming close. Hehe.

I hope I am of help to you guys.
I'll be editing this post to give you the directions on how to get to those places but I will take my time, okay? It's difficult finding it all. ♥

Please share this okay!? :D

Herb Island
35 Cheongsin-ro 947beon-gil Pocheon-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 포천시 신북면 청신로947번길 35)

It's been a looooooooooooooooooong time since I updated this blog with a Hyde, Jekyll & I location. I must admit I was kinda hooked with Kill Me, Heal Me (I ATE MY WORDS, 알아!!!!) so there wasn't much time figuring out the locations.

But then I'm back. And despite this entry being a little bit too late (Episode 3 LOL), I'll still put it here.

So this is the Herb Island in Gyeonggi Province. It is a famous garden filled with beautiful flowering plants. It's a new place to me so I can't tell you that much but if you're wondering if the lights are on only during winter/Christmas season, then I have to tell you that I'm with you in curiosity. Haha.

MBC New Building
267 Seongam-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 성암로 267)

NOW THIS KILL ME HEAL ME SCENE WAS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED!

When Cha Dohyun (Ji Sung) kissed Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum), it just totally blew me away. I didn't expect that one scene would actually lead into that awesome kiss. Maybe I'm just exaggerating or what, but that particular part of the episode marked the drama on my list of top favorites. I mean, the emotion was felt. While watching, I could feel how Dohyun fell in love with Rijin that very instant. 

Or maybe, I was just too caught off guard because it looked so natural? So natural that if I didn't know Ji Sung's married to Lee Boyoung, I would have thought there's something going on between him and his current leading lady.

LOL

I initially thought that the this Korean drama scene was filmed at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza but there was no skating rink there. But luckily, I came across this blog and saw that it was actually beside the new MBC Building in Mapo. It's where Pinocchio filmed most of there broadcast and company scenes so many of you might be familiar with it already. Yes, I'm referring to the YGN and MSC buildings.

I didn't know about this place at all, and I've been missing out on a lot.
For a Korean drama fan like myself, I think it's going to be a regret to not visit this what they call the Culture Contents Center. There is like a museum in there which features the costumes, filming props, and everything that has to do with the Korean dramas MBC had produced in the past. 

Right now, I actually feel so excited. Imagine? This is like a dream come true to any Korean drama fan. MBC is known to be one of the best producers of Korean dramas so I'm sure a trip to this place is never gonna go to waste.

Now now...

Remember that scene when Ahn Yo Na first appeared? That scene when Ji Sung had to dress up and act like a girl chasing idols who were having their fan meeting in the area? You remember?

Yes, it's here too.

To get to this place, you can just follow the directions here. 






I know, I know, you're welcome. :)

Everland
199 Everland-ro, Pogok-eub, Cheoin-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 용인시 처인구 포곡읍 에버랜드로 199)

Shin Se Gi (Ji Sung) dared to try the dating game but failed initially. It wasn't until he brought Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) to this place that he actually succeeded - only to be cockblocked by Cha Dohyun. LOL.

So the kiss happened for Kill Me Heal Me. It was very emotional. IT WAS TOTALLY MOVING because I'm very, very into kiss scenes where guys cry. I don't know but it's just that that particular scene doesn't happen often and it takes a great deal to actors to do that. Ji Sung pulled off such painful scene. I'm happy.

Anyway, Everland - as we all know - is one of the most amazing amusement parks in the world. There is no way I'm letting pass any opportunity to visit this place. There is something in this place that will surely bring me back to my childhood yet preserve my being adult. Of course, Disneyland and Lotte World can do that; but there's really something special about this place.

If I'm coming to Disneyland, I want it to be at night - when the lights are on. I love how literally every corner of the place glows with the colorful blinking LED installations. Plus the fireworks? It would be amazing.

Garden Gallery
57-28 Gangbyeonbuk-ro 632beon-gil 
경기도 남양주시 강변북로632번길 57-28

The family of Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) and Oh Rion/Omega (Park Seojun) in the Korean drama Kill Me, Heal Me lives in a gorgeous home with a charming garden. The house is even used as a restaurant in the drama, and indeed, it is.

The house the drama refers to as Ssangri (쌍리) is actually the Garden Gallery in Gyeonggi Province. If I'm not mistaken, it's perched on a high area fronting the Han River. Cool, right? 

If you wish to see more pictures of the place, you can visit this blog.

International St. Mary's Hospital
25 Simgok-ro 100 beon-gil Seo-gu, Incheon
(인천 서구 심곡로100번길25)

As Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) is a psychiatrist for the Korean Drama Kill Me Heal Me, of course, she has to work in a hospital. And the hospital she's working at is the International St. Mary's Hospital in Incheon.

Now what sets this incredible hospital apart from all else is that it has a shopping mall and medical theme park attached to it. There are exciting and recreational facilities offered for the public to use in order to keep them entertained while staying in the hospital. If I'm not mistaken, the hospital even offers hotel-like facilities for interns, patients' relatives, and all.

The International St. Mary's Hospital is becoming more and more famous among Korean dramas as its filming location. I don't think you have to be sick to go visit this hospital though. So maybe we can all drop by if we go to Seoul?

WAV Club
379 Apgjueong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
서울 강남구 압구정동 379

I once said I have no interest in Kill Me Heal Me yet but obviously, my thoughts changed and gave the first episode a try. While the plot does not appeal to me as much as Hyde, Jekyll & Me does, I still have to give heads up to the fact that this is Ji Sung and he's growing in me. LOL. Looking at him and his famous smirk as the other person, Seki, makes me wonder about how Lee Taemin will look like when he gets older.

Going back to the drama, WAV Club is what they called the Paradise Club. This is where the welcome party for Cha Dohyun (Ji Sung) was held and where the psychiatric patient of Oh Rijin (Hwang Jungeum) escaped to. This is also where Dohyun changed into Seki and got into a fight with Jo Yunho who really kept on making me laugh because I always remember his scenes from The Gag Concert. Most importantly, this filming location is where the 10 o'clock confession happened. LOL

WAV Club is actually a floating establishment in the Han River in Apgujeong, as part of the Hangang Park. It is one of the most interesting clubs in Seoul although I have to assume that costs are quite high. It is a usual venue of product launches because of its spacious dance area and captivating lights and sounds system. DJs are set on a high area for everyone to see. COOL.

I first came across this filming site through I Need a Romance 3.

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

I don't know why it felt like so long before the Episode 7 of Korean drama Hyde, Jekyll & I was released. LOL. Until I realized that it's airing two days a week. Grrr.

Anyway, in the drama, Wonderland is set in Lotte World, right?
But the actual building shots were filmed in Times Square in Yeongdungpo-gu.
It is one of the most popular shopping malls in Seoul and is like a part of Shinsegae, if I'm not mistaken.

So yeah, this is where the performance for the circus troupe will be held.
Geez. I'm excited.
