Sisters Dhen and Ellaine Reyes are such big fans of K-Drama. One day, they applied for a Korean Visa on a whim and before they knew it, they were in Korea, land of their favorite TV shows!
Upon arrival, their first thought was, K-Drama related: "walang subtitle" referring to the signs written in the Korean alphabet. It took them some time to get to their Airbnb, but when they did, their first order of business was to re-watch K-Dramas. LOL!
After a restful night, the two sisters set out to find the places where their fave K-Dramas were shot.
Choong Ang High School
This is the school of Ji Eun Tak in Goblin.
Heo Jeon Jae's house
This is Lee Min Ho's character's house in Legend of the Blue Sea.
N Seoul Tower
This popular tourist destination is where scenes from My Love From The Star and Legend of the Blue Sea (among many other shows) were filmed.
Water fountain in front of Shinsegae
This is where Goblin's Sunny and the Grim Reaper broke up. It's also where Shim Cheong waited for Heo Joon Jae before she was held captive by the police in Legend of the Blue Sea.
This place is where Goblin's Kim Shin bought Mr. Buckwheat for Eun Tak.
Stone Wall Alleyway
Goblin's Kim Shin at Eun Tak first met here.
House of Goblin
A lot of scenes in Goblin have been shot in this area.
Tea House White Birch Story
Goblin's Eun Tak and Sunny had some scenes here.
National Palace Museum of Korea
Where Legend of the Blue Sea's Heo Joon Jae saw the painting of Dam Ryung's face.
A lot of Winter Sonata's scenes were shot here.
This is where Noh Eul kissed Joon-young's poster in Uncontrollably Fond.
Dhen and Ellaine didn't also pass up on the chance to recreate their fave scenes involving food! They tried fishcakes, one of Kim Bok Joo's favorite snacks and went to Subway where quite a number of K-Dramas have been filmed. Goblin and Descendants of the Sun are just two of those.
Aside from the food, the two sisters also made it a point to buy merch of their fave stars. AKA all products that were used by or have the faces of their faves!
Of course, what's a trip to Korea without a pic with an oppa? Even if said oppas were only standees or advertisments, they didn't pass up on the opportunity to take photos with them.
