Spice up your Korea journey with these beautiful filming locations featured on these all-time favorite K-drama series. Being in lockdown has definitely increase my K-drama library and I’ve got the itch to visit Korea once all this blows over. As a die-hard K-drama fan, I’m always on the lookout for filming locations to feature to my trips.

Here are 4 unique K-drama filming locations that’ll add more culture and flavor to your next Korea journey.


  • Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

  • E-World, Daegu:

E-world was highlighted in another famous dating scene, this time from ‚ÄėWeightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo‚Äô. This¬†funfair¬†in Daegu city was where Kim Bok Joo and Jung Joon Hyung went for a ‚Äúdate‚ÄĚ with their friends tagging along, and also where¬†the 2¬†held hands for the first time in the drama.

  • What‚Äôs Wrong With Secretary Kim

  • Everland Amusement Park:

Amusement park dates are romantic, but Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) takes it to a special level when he reserves the whole park for his love interest, Kim Mi-so (Park Min-young).
Their first date happened in one among the most important and most visited theme parks in South Korea: Everland funfair. Enjoy the day with its fun-filled attractions. Don’t forget to require an image ahead of the carousel where Lee Young-joon asked Kim Mi-so out.

  • Stairway To Heaven

  • Lotte World:

Located¬†within the¬†city centre¬†of Seoul, Lotte World¬†may be a¬†unique¬†amusement park, with¬†an inside¬†and outdoor section. The drama ‚ÄúStairway to Heaven‚ÄĚ brought this fantastical land to viewers‚Äô attention with¬†a gorgeous¬†plot and soundtrack. The story revolved around two star-crossed lovers, played by Kwon Sang-woo and Choi Ji-woo, who were childhood best friends with similar tragic experiences. Lotte World became a special place where¬†the 2¬†kids played around, especially on the carousel¬†and therefore the¬†ice-skating rink.

  • Descendants of the Sun

  • Wolmido Island:

Last but¬†never¬†least, this post must highlight a filming location¬†the newest¬†major K-drama hit ‚ÄúDescendants of the Sun‚ÄĚ Although most of the drama‚Äôs filming spots are¬†faraway from¬†Seoul,¬†you'll¬†visit Wolmido Island. The handsome leads, Song Joong-ki and Jin Goo, played¬†within the¬†shooting gallery at this¬†amusement park¬†by the coast of Incheon.
