Seoul Central District Court
1737-1 Seocho-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul
(서울 서초구 서초동 1737-1)

The trial scene of Soo In (Han Jihye) was probably filmed here.
Probably, because who knows? They might have just used the facade of this building as an establishing shot. Hehe. :)

Anyway, this is the Seoul Central Court.
It appears often in Korean dramas which involves divorces, court trials, and more.
I've seen a lot of scenes showing this place already but my favorite would be the ones from I Hear Your Voice.

Prison Set
207 Hamnang-ro, Seongdang-myeong, Iksan-si, North Jeolla
(전북 익산시 성당면 함낭로 207)

NOW THIS AMAZED ME
SOUTH KOREA ACTUALLY HAS BUILT A WHOLE NEW PRISON TO BE USED AS A FILMING LOCATION FOR KOREAN DRAMAS, MOVIES, ETC.
IF THAT'S NOT AMAZING, I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE IS.

Now, let's not ask anymore where Two Weeks and Miracle Cell No. 7 were filmed, okay? :)
I'm also guessing that the prison scenes in It's Okay, That's Love were shot here too. Hihi

Yongin Forest of Tranquility
77 Pyeongonisup-ro, Idong-myeon, Cheoin-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 용인시 처인구 이동면 평온의숲로 77)

I really had no plans in watching this Korean drama but I did when Ai Fung requested for the locations, and I ended up getting interested with the plot. :)

Anyway, this is the Yongin Forest of Tranquility, a wake/burial place in Gyeonggi.
It is located in the mountains, like most cemeteries in the country.

Cafe 시인과바다
1887 Haean-ro, Jumunjib-eup, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do
(강원 강릉시 주문진읍 해안로 1887)

This is where Dongwook moved with his mother after letting go of the Ciel Hotel.
It was where some scenes of the final episode of Hotel King was filmed.

Cafe 시인과바다 is a beachfront cafe. The name Siingwa Bada literally translates to "The Poet and the Sea" and it's kinda appropriate because with the beautiful location of this beautiful place, anyone can really delve into literary glory.

In the Korean drama, it was shown that polaroid pictures of the casts were hang on a small clotheslines in the window. If I'm not mistaken, it's still there up to now.

Dunkin' Donuts
93 Sejongdae-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul
(서울 중구 세종대로 93)

It's pretty obvious that Dunkin' Donuts is a major sponsor of Birth of a Beauty, right?
Several scenes have shown the characters filming in a branch, and I'm guessing that I have found the place they're using for the Korean drama.

If I'm not mistaken, it's this one near the Sicheong Station, along Sejongdae-ro.
But the easiest landmark is that it's just beside the main entrance of Deoksugung, one of the five grand palaces in Seoul and is a favorite tourist attraction in Seoul.

It's fairly easy to get there.
All you have to do is to find your way to Sicheong Station. Both green and blue lines will pass by this stop. You can use Exits 1 or 2 if you used the Blue Line; or Exit 12 if you rode the Green Line.

The Greem
175 Sanasa-gil, Okcheon-myeon, Yangpyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do
(경기 양평군 옥천면 사나사길 175)

While Taehee (Joo Sangwook) lives on his own, his grandmother was living with the main villains.
This is the house.

While it's quite weird pronouncing its name especially that it's almost Christmas time, it's beauty never fades. The Greem is actually a cafe in Yangpyeong-gun in Gyeonggi Province and is primarily visited by locals and tourists alike because of its romantic, relaxing and stunning environment.

Looking at the place in pictures, it really makes me feel like it's a different country.
Somehow, the 'European countryside' feel is there and it just intensifies the beauty of the place.

The Greem is often used as a filming site for many dramas and movies in South Korea.
Those who watch Korean dramas can easily identify it because of its distinct appeal.
If you watched Doctor Stranger, it was used there as the house of Oh Soohyun (Kang Sora) and her family.

Shilla Hotel
3039-3beonji, Saekdal-dong, Seogwipo-si, Jeju Island

I've been going through my files and I saw that I have a lot of places yet to ID for some other Korean dramas.
That's why if you're gonna see a lot of Throwback Thursday-worthy posts like this, forgive me. :)

So this one is in Jeju Island.
It is one of the most luxurious hotels in Jeju and many VIPs come there for staycations.
It is a usual filming site of Korean dramas, like Marry Him If You Dare.

One Mount
Juyeop-2dong, Ilsan-seogu, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi
(경기 고양시 일산서구 주엽2동)

If not for Pinocchio, I wouldn't have found this location for Grandpa Over Flowers.
I didn't get to watch the Korean drama that much but because it's Kim Heechul, I realized that I should post this one nevertheless.

Okay, so this particular location is actually a cultural center in Goyang.
This hanok stands inside the vast complex of One Mount perhaps to represent the important culture of South Korea in the midst of modernity.
And I always think that's genius!

Cafe Anthracite
10 Tojeong-ro 5-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 토정로5길 10)

Okay, so I'm trying to keep my promises and though it's quite difficult, I'm trying to continue working on the Let's Eat filming locations.

For those who couldn't remember, Let's Eat is a Korean drama which plot basically puts focus on different restaurants and local dishes. It stars Yoon Doojoon, leader of boy group B2ST.

This is just one of the many. And this is Cafe Anthracite in Mapo-gu.
It may look like a really unattractive place but I really like how it feels private and quiet in there.

Yongma Land
118 Mangu-ro 70-gil, Jungrang-gu, Seoul 

(서울 중랑구 망우로70길 118)

I have to admit I didn't watch the Korean drama, but I do owe you a little, right?
I said I'm ID-ing but I only had one so let me make it up to you with this new post for Angel Eyes Filming Locations.

This is Yongma Land, an abandoned amusement park in Seoul which has been a favorite location for photoshoots and romantic dates.
I don't understand how couples won't find it creepy because everything seems so eerie to me;
but when I saw the pictures, it was actually beautiful. :)

Yongma Land is a favorite filming site of many Korean dramas, particularly the broken carousel.
Music videos like Romantic J's Love Falls was shot here too!

Shinsegae Department Store
63 Sogong-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul
(서울 중구 소공로 63)

I SWEAR THE JONGSUK/SHINHYE TANDEM IS NO JOKE

After eating udon, Choi Dalpo (Lee Jongsuk) and Choi Inha (Park Shinhye) were walking along this particular street, talking about their feelings. But you know what made this place more special? It is where the two main characters had their first kiss!

This is in Shinsegae Department Store in Chungmu-ro. The mall is basically one of the biggest malls in Korea and has been a favorite shopping place of many Korean artists.
It features a lot of designer brands including Louis Vuitton, which is basically how I knew about the location. HAHAHA

Here's how it looks like from the main road:



Anyway, forget the location.
LET'S TALK ABOUT THE DRAMA. AND THE KISS.

I love Jongsuk. I love Shinhye.
And when it was announced that they're going to be in a Korean drama together, I kinda forget how to breathe (exaggerated, sorry) because this is like a dream tandem to me. To have two amazing actors blessed with overflowing aegyo and talent in one production is like a God-given blessing to drama fans.

And you know what was the first thing that came to my mind?
The kiss.
Jongsuk is undeniably one of the greatest kissers among all Korean actors today.
And well, Shinhye - IN MY HONEST OPINION - is not performing well in that department.
That's why I wanted the man to demonstrate the woman the art of kissing perfectly.
And on Episode 8, it happened.

Believe me, I was screaming literally when the scene happened.
The kiss wasn't forced. It wasn't rushed. It was perfect.
Heck, it didn't even look like they were acting.
I've seen Shinhye kiss a lot of guys before but this is really the first time I've seen her in such a dazed state. HAHAHAHA.
Jongsuk, YOU DID A GOOD JOB!!!!!
PINOCCHIO IS JJANG!

So yeah, that's basically my whole thoughts while I was watching the drama.
Finding this filming location kinda gave me a headache though.
So yeah, if you wish to reenact the scene with your partner, feel free to do so.
Just don't do it in broad daylight. LOL. Koreans aren't really comfortable with PDA. :p

Namsan Tower's Roof Terrace

No, I just can't not post this here.
Jung Joonyoung with Cha Taehyun, singing a song at the Roof Terrace of Namsan Tower to get money for a mission they have to complete for Korean variety show 1N2D.

This happened a long time ago.
But I'm posting it nevertheless.
I love these two.
Perfect combination. HAHAHA

YTN Building
76 Sangamsan-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
(서울 마포구 상암산로 76)

Yes, the famous YGN News Company where Choi Dal Po (Lee Jongsuk) works as a reporter is actually YTN Building in Sangam-dong. It's a relatively new company, if I'm not mistaken.

I don't think fans of Pinocchio can freely enter the building. Maybe, a picture from the outside will suffice if you really want to visit the filming locations of this Korean drama? Or maybe you can just look at the pictures at this blog?

You can drop me a comment if you need help in finding the building. ^^
