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.

Castle Assisi

(경기 양평군 강하면 강남로 319)

When Geon (Jang Hyuk) lost his memory about his wife (Jang Nara), he brought Sera (Wang Jiwon) to a date at the Castle Assisi. However, the latter was pissed off after the twin/triplet went to them and asked about the wife. LOL

So yeah, it happened in a restaurant at Castle Assisi.
Beautiful place, totally.

Incheon University
119 Academy-ro, Yeonsu-gu, Incheon
(인천 연수구 아카데미로 119)

Gu Seojin (Hyun Bin) was supposed to go to his doctor for a check-up. Actually, he was supposed to know the cure for his disease. Jang Hana (Han Jimin) followed him there to ask about the contract in Wonderland. However, an unfortunate thing happened. After entering the office through a rope, Jimin discovered the body of the doctor, with lots of blood pooling from her head.

And that's how the whole conflict began.

Now where was the hospital? At the Incheon University - Seongdo Campus.

I gasped when I saw the scene.
Because I have just recently found out that this was GOT7's school for their webdrama, I instantly recognized the place. And this building they chose is just near the entrance, in line with the many other astounding buildings of the university.

Foresta
59-6 Heiri Maeul-gil, Tanhyeon-myeon, Paju-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 파주시 탄현면 헤이리마을길 59-6)

Ever wondered where that beautiful cafe where Jinhyuk and Nara met to talk about meeting the man's supposedly sister? Yeah, it's Foresta in Gyeonggi. It was once a filming location for the WGM episode of Hongki and Mina (this is where they met!) and since then, I fell in love with it.

I love the simplicity yet the striking appeal of the place.
But above all, I love the fact that it is like a mini-library where lots of books are available for reading!

Once in a Blue Moon
824 Seolleung-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
(서울 강남구 선릉로 824)

This is surely becoming a regular filming location for many Korean dramas.
As usual, it features the characters drinking while listening to jazz singers.

In the Korean drama Fated to Love You, the scene showed Daniel Pitt (Choi Jinhyuk) and Kang Miyoung (Jang Nara) talking about their status as almost-lovers. After what I believe was the rejection scene, the guy consoled his broken heart by singing a song. Or was it the other way around? LOL

Either way, this is the place they went to.
Once in a Blue Moon is a jazz bar in Gangnam, near everything else.
It is easy to locate and is easy to reach.
All you have to do is find your way to the Apgujeong Rodeo Station (Yellow Line) Exit 4.
From there, head south (towards the direction you're facing).
Once in a Blue Moon is just like a few meters away.

I remember Jinhyuk singing on Emergency Couple too.
His voice's so manly. HAHAHA

On the final episode, the two were shown trying the wedding gown and suit.
It happened in this bridal shop.
Looks familiar? Maybe you saw this one already?
