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.

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.
