KDrama enthusiasts surely know this cafe! It’s the filming set of the famous rom-com drama ‘Coffee Prince’ which aired back in 2007. It starred Lee Sun Kyun, Chae Jung An, Yoon Eun Hye, and Gong Yoo.

The cafe is located in Mapo-gu, Seoul.

Did you know that this coffee shop was actually an old coffee shop? It was only renovated for the drama.

The walls are now decorated with signatures from various actors and idols. Most fans who come to this cafe take photos with the wall as their background. However, the barista of the coffee shop is very strict. Before you can roam around and take pictures, you have to purchase something from the shop first.

No idea what to eat? They’ve got you covered!

Here’s another to-go place in Seoul!

Back in the Joseon Dynasty, aristocratic classes lived here. According to Yiwon Travels; their tour guide mentioned that nowadays, wealthy people live there and the land value is higher. As you reach the place, you’d find it rather quiet and peaceful. The tour guides will ask you to comply so as there were complaints from the residents before.

Bukchon means ‘northern village‘ whereas Hanok means ‘traditional house‘.

It is also a filming set used in ‘Personal Taste’ starring the famous Lee Min Ho. Also, ‘Running Man’ filmed at this Hanok Village before.

Yiwon Travels also suggests going to Namsangol Hanok Village located in the Gyeonggi-do province.

What’s so famous about Hanok?

Korean traditional houses are environmental-friendly. Hanoks are made of soil, timber and rocks which are natural, recyclable and pollution-free substances. Due to its adjustable tiled, curvy roofs, you can control the amount of sunlight entering the house. Hanoks have a floor-based heating system and cool wooden-floor style made for hot summers and cool winters. There are posts inserted to the cornerstones of Hanoks to keep it safe from earthquakes.

Sounds like the perfect house, right?
