If I could grant you that wish, would you let me?
Well...maybe not literally, but we can get you there in our virtual world.
Your first visit to Seoul, South Korea will have you whirling as you find yourself standing in the very same places you saw in a drama. In the midst of sightseeing around this picturesque city, you get that tingling deja vu moment as you realize you've seen this place somewhere before. The aha moment connects as you remember the scene from your drama. Once you find one, it may become an obsession to search for more. Some have blazed the path before you, so you may find directions online. Other places can only be found through intense sleuthing.
Seoul is huge. More like a state with lots of counties, then cities, and finally neighborhoods. Learning to navigate the subways and bus lines will help you locate specific places. Signs help, but some are only in Korean. Not to worry, phone apps help you to find the correct line and mode of transportation. Not all dramas are filmed in Seoul, but a great number have at least some scenes filmed in this sprawling metropolis.
We've found several places from our favorite shows. Some of these landmarks and popular destinations have been in multiple series. See how many of the following places you can recognize! List a drama for each of the pictures in the comments below. Whoever lists the most will earn a souvenir from Namsan Tower. Good luck!
Here's what we can do for you!

Here are a few scenes that inspired us to find some of these places.
