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. ^^
