Namsan Open Air Botanical Garden
258-148 Itaewon 2-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
(서울 용산구 이태원2동 258-148)
The Namsan Open Air Botanical Garden is a park along Itaewon 2-dong, just across the famous Grand Hyatt Hotel. It is a famous destination for some soul-searching, couple dates, and family bonding moments.
I couldn't not find this one. This Korean drama filming location meant so much than I would have thought. For in this place, my thoughts were spoken out loud in the Korean drama She Was Pretty. This is where one of the most heartbreaking scenes I have ever watched was filmed.
The pool scene was on a different level though. But just as painful.
After the pool incident when Kim Hyejin (Hwang Jungeum) was left alone when everyone went to save her bestfriend from drowning, she went home, drenched, and walked alone this beautiful park. There, she was laughed at by a couple.
I teared up watching and understanding the irony of the scene. It was a very heartbreaking scene set in a very beautiful place: two contrasting features, two contrasting stories which define the everyday life of most people around us.
It is a free tourist destination in Seoul, ideal for your cheap travel to Korea Hopefully, I get to visit it soon.
