This might surprise you, but Reply 1988 wasn't actually filmed in Ssangmun-dong, Seoul. The iconic street where our favorite K-drama families lived was actually a set built in Uijeongbu City in Gyeonggi Province. According to Soompi, the set was supposed to be preserved as a tourist attraction, but because it was built near the Uijeongbu Stadium, "there was a limit to letting it remain as a tourist attraction or as a set for other dramas." So...it was actually demolished! Don't worry, according to the site Korean Dramaland, there are many Reply 1988 locations you can still visit:

Remember when Jung Hwan realized he ~lost his chance~? He was only late for a few seconds, but Taek was already there for Deok Sun! According to Korean Dramaland, the heartbreaking scene was filmed outside the Uijeongbu Arts Center.

2. Yalgaki Tteokbokki

Deok Sun, Maggie, and Joey's favorite place is a store called Brazilian Tteokbokki. It's also where her friends told poor Deok Sun that Sun Woo liked her even though he was actually crushing on her older sister. Guess what? The *actual* store's walls are even filled with Reply 1988 memorabilia.
